Preview – The Cardinals overachieved last season, earning a postseason bid and a bowl win. The good news is that the talent they have this year will be about the same as last year. That means that overachievement is again necessary to find success. The biggest question is if Junior Will Stein will shine at the quarterback position. The offense will take a hit from last season with the loss of Bilal Powell as well. The defense will be a solid unit that should play well together, seven starters return to patrol the field. This will make this team tough to move on. Be ready for a defensive struggle.
Key Returning Players – RB Victor Anderson, C Mario Venavides, WR Josh Bellamy
Key Losses – RB Bilal Powell, WR Doug Beaumont, QB Adam Froman,
