The offensive unit is averaging 381.9 yards and 24.2 points per game. But has to deal with stopping turnovers as they have committed 14 in eight games thus far.

Quarterback Keaton Studsrud is doing the best he could do but lacks necessary support. Starting in seven of eight games, he has thrown 1,213 yards for six touchdowns and six interceptions.
