2018 Offensive Outlook: Most of our skill players are returning giving us a sharp, veteran look. Replacing Myers, Egger, Benjamin will be the key to our offense, we averaged 23 points a game last season and look to continue with our productive ways this season.

2018 Defensive Outlook: You are not going to win many games giving up an average of 40 points a game, upgrading our defensive efforts is paramount to having a successful season. Returning 8 starters on that side of the ball will help but we need to get tougher mentally and play a more physical style of football

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Big 30 All-Star game participant, Seth Harrington graduating leaves a big void in our kicking game.
Aiden Morrison punted as a sophomore and should reclaim that role this year. The placekicking and kickoff positions remain up in the air. Our return game is in good shape with Devin McMeans and Ryan Arnold returning.
