Key Stats: Just about even stat in passing yardage (45%) and running yardage last season (55%).

2017 Offensive Outlook: We have to be able to run the football more effectively this season to offset our inexperience at QB Once we settle in on a QB we should be should be a very productive offense. Very experienced at the skill and offensive line positions. We have to establish the run to throw the ball.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Solid defensive front. A little inexperienced in the secondary. Did a fair job last season on stopping the run but have to be more consistent in doing that this season. If skill players develop, we should be a solid defense.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Outstanding special team player in Connor Engle. Should be a weapon for us on in the kicking game. We need to work hard on special teams this season. Gave up to many big plays last season.
