But a lot of our beat writers have said they picked this game as the biggest trap game of the year. We shall see.
What do you think of your team though? I haven't been able to see them play yet, and neither have any of my roommates. 5-1 looks good, but is it a soft 5-1?
Soft 5-1,we haven't played any quality offense (Mizzou was missing their QB, Utah was missing QB). I think we are an 8 win team, and I think an upset is possible but not likely. You guys should win by 15+. We are a bit different this year with new coach:
Offense: Run heavy spread, no-huddle offense. Our top recievers are our RBs (we use 3) and TE. Our QB Kelly is in his first year and he can run a bit, is a great scrambler, smart player, doesn't turn it over. We use a 2-QB system, Michael Eubank will come in and run more of a QB run option offense.
Defense: 3-3-5 D with a safety/LB hybrid position. We blitz on almost every single play. DT/DE Sutton is #4 in sacks and #4 in TFL. We have a handful of blitzing LBs (Chris Young - JUCO transfer, Carl Bradford, Brandon Magee - missed last year due to injury). Junior Onyeali (2 years ago won PAc-10 defensive rookie of the year) doesn't start, he usually splits time with Bradford to keep our blitzers fresh.
