The unit will switch away from the Georgia gameplan, back to the BC 1-back offense to get receivers onto the field instead of the FB.

On the line, DT Murray and 2nd team All ACC DE Holloway return. In the secondary, 2nd team All ACC CB Fletcher and 2nd team All ACC SS Legrande return.

While, So K Freese improved his power and accuracy in the offseason and looks to become a weapon. In the return game, BC is extremely excited to see RS Fr speedster Shakim Phillips make plays.
