OUTLOOK: Quarterback Sean Schaefer, starting his fourth straight season, is the FCS active leader in career completions (741) and passing yardage (8,358). He will again be joined by fellow senior Marcus Lee (167 career catches for 1,928 yards and seven TDs). The Tigers will need either more of a running game (only 68.5 yards a game) or a better rush defense (177.8) to turn things around. Senior linebacker Jordan Manning has to stay healthy for that to happen defensively.
