CBS Sports ranks all 351 teams and they’ve got the Red Raiders ranked 69th overall (yes, this is nice) and this seems a bit low:
Veteran team with a good coach in Chris Beard. Kind of reminds me of when Tubby Smith was there a few years ago and wound up getting into the NCAAs with ease after having no expectation at all of doing so. Wouldn’t be a shock if I’m wrong on this team and it ends up as a top-50 squad, but senior tweener forward Zach Smith is going to need help.
This seems like the writer really doesn’t know that there is some additional help, like Keenan Evans, but whatever. I didn’t rank 351 teams.

A-J Media’s Don Williams writes about how the defensive front seven has allowed Jah’Shawn Johnson make more plays:
The Red Raiders’ front seven has been at the forefront of a much-improved rushing defense. With the defensive linemen doing a better job this season of tying up blockers, Johnson has had a clear lane to come up and make a lot of his tackles.
“Huge help,” he said. “I know waking up the next day, my body is not feeling as bad. They’ve done a great job clogging up gaps. Linebackers have done a great job fitting off of the D-line.
“You don’t even see much of what they do, but they take up a lot of blockers for us in the back end and make our job a lot easier. Credit to those guys and coach (Terrence) Jamison for what they’ve done.”
