We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at the Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The Central Arkansas Bears come to town to take on the Kansas State Wildcats.
This is the first meeting between the two teams in recent history.
Central Arkansas Bears
The Central Arkansas Bears will look to build off a very successful 2016 campaign that saw them go 10-3 and finish second in the Southland conference.
Coming into this season they are 15th in the preseason FCS poll, and are the only Southland conference team that are represented.
The heart and soul of this team is on the defensive side of the football. Last year they held opponents to 21.5 points per game. It all started up front stopping the run and they were very successful doing that holding opponents to 72 rushing yards per game.
To win this game that defense is going to need to be really strong. They are going to need to try and slow down an explosive Wildcats attack.
If they can do that the offense will have to find a way to score, which might be even the harder task to try and accomplish.
Kansas State Wildcats
The Kansas State Wildcats feel like this is going to be a special year for them. After finishing with a 9-4 record last year and fourth place in the Big 12, this team feels like they could sneak in there and really contend for the conference title.
On the offensive side of the ball, like usual this team is all going to be about running the ball. Almost all of the offensive line returns from last year, and they should be even better this year.
Not only will this rushing attack probably be one of the best int he Big 12, they might be one of the best in all of the country.
The pass game does need to be more efficient though. At time quarterback Jesse Ertz had issues throwing the ball and it was their downfall in a couple of games.
On the defensive side of the ball. this team needs to be a bit better at stopping the pass, which is a tall task in the Big 12.
If they can do that, this team is going to be in for a very special year.
