Key Stats: We lost all of our statistical leaders to graduation.
2018 Offensive Outlook: We do not have a lot of game experience and we will have to develop many younger players early to be successful. We do have a lot of team speed and will use that to our advantage.
2018 Defensive Outlook: We have to control the line of scrimmage and use our size up front to try to do that. Our secondary is the most experienced group on our team and we will rely on them for their leadership.
2018 Special Teams Outlook: We will be starting a new kicker and punter this season.
