The RedHawks bring uncertainty under center to four road games in their first six. That’s a tenuous combination.

Offense

How the RedHawks beat you: “We’ll use [WRs] some in the run game,” coach Chuck Martin says of his corps, which gets three of its top four back: soph Sam Martin and juniors Rokeem Williams and Jared Murphy (1,603 yards total).

How you beat the RedHawks: MU tallied 3.3 rush ypc in ’14 (No. 114 in the FBS) and still lacks a backfield playmaker for ’15.

Defense

How the RedHawks beat you: Junior DBs Heath Harding and Marshall Taylor offer a small spark: 12 pass breakups combined.

How you beat the RedHawks: Martin wanted to switch between three- and four-man fronts last year, but “our kids couldn’t handle it.” His kids also couldn’t get to the QB: 16 sacks all year (No. 112 in the FBS).
