Pro Style – Starters Returning: 10
The Scarlet Knights ranked 114th in total offense (295 YPG), but are strong in the skill positions. QB Chas Dodd has an exciting WR trio with Mark Harrison (9 receiving TD), Mohamed Sanu and redshirt frosh Brandon Coleman. Jeremy Deering and stud recruit Savon Huggins can both run the football. But they still have major worries about an offensive line that allowed the most sacks in the nation last year (61). Football odds.
Base 43 – Starters Returning: 5
The defense, which gave up 37.7 PPG during its season-ending six-game losing skid, is most thin on the defensive line, but is pretty bad in all facets. Football spreads.
