Maroon_key_medium Limit the Spartan Pass Rush - This defense is really good, but plays can be made if we can give Nelson a bit of time. But these guys get to the quarterback quite well with their front, allowing them to have 7 in pass coverage. The offensive line needs to be physical and playing well today.

Turnovers Might be the Difference -
Last week we had a few fumbles that killed us, this week we have to win the turnover battle. In fact, scoring on a turnover might be critical if we want to win. The Spartan D is really, REALLY good and scoring some points with our defense might be our best offense.
