Underwood says they needing to replace key offensive line spots but likes the players he has on team.  Underwood says position battles remain for some positions on the offensive line, receiver and defensive back.  Defensively the Huskies are led by preseason defensive player of the year in the NSIC, senior defensive back Marvin Mathews.

The Huskies will play a schedule that includes only NSIC conference members this season.  SCSU is picked to finish 2nd in the preseason coaches poll behind only Minnesota-Duluth.
