Now, Tennessee football will have to contain a player looking to break out against the state school of his birthplace. Scot Loeffler has plenty of new and ready to break out weapons to work with on offense this year. Washington Huskies transfer wide receiver Austin Osborne was once a four-star. Tyrone Broden is the leading returning receiver.
Given how much Matt McDonald struggled last year, completing just over 43 percent of his passes with one touchdown and six interceptions, the offense would obviously be defined by the skill players. Of those skill players, the top running back from last year makes the list.
Stewart is easily BGSU’s biggest offensive weapon. Last year, he had 37 carries for 295 yards, averaging an amazing eight yards a carry, and four touchdowns. He also had two catches for 10 yards. With issues on the offensive line, how well he performs is up in the air, but he will be Loeffler’s bread and butter this game, and if he can get past the line, he can do damage.
From Josh Heupel’s perspective, Tennessee football obviously has issues at linebacker, which we’ve discussed. As a result, if Stewart does magically get past the line, the whole defense needs to keep an eye on him. He could hit home runs after that, and it’s why he’s the top player that everybody on Rocky Top needs to key on.
