How They'll Finish
PLAYERS TO WATCH Top performers from unranked teams in the conference
linebacker, he finished last season with 12 1/2�sacks, more than any other
returning player in the country. The senior is a speed rusher who patterns his

schedule that includes Boise State, Ohio State and USC.
