“They’ve made some changes, unfortunately for us. They’ve got a tremendous amount of speed on the field, a lot more aggressive, a lot more attacking, they’re blitzing more,” said Holgorsen.

“A lot more heavier in the box this year, a lot more blitzing” Dawson said. “Schematically they’re a little bit different this year, a little more attacking style.”
