|How they got here:||Pool A, OAC champ
|You'll know they're playing well if:||The offense gets into a rhythm quickly. In Week 11 against John
Carroll, the Purple Raiders ran 86 plays.
|You'll know they're playing poorly if:||Well not that anyone's actually seen them play poorly, but if
they're allowing pressure on the quarterback, who leads the nation
in passing efficiency, that could be a problem. They've had injury
issues at left tackle.
|This season's turning point:||Making the call in the preseason to go with Kevin Burke at quarterback. Twenty-four touchdowns and four interceptions later, it looks like a good call.|
|Rushing/passing yards per game:||261.1/269.3
|Rushing/passing yards allowed:||37.7/119.0
|How far can they go?||To the postgame celebration in Salem.|
