One key player for Knoxville
In this case, the key player(s) will be the Knoxville offensive line. The Bondurant-Farrar defense puts immense pressure on the opposition team’s offenses. They’ve given up some points the last two weeks but they get to the QB (16 sacks) and force turnovers (15). The Panther offensive line will need to be strong and up to the challenge this week.
Keys for Knoxville
The Knoxville offense has been held to seven points in three of the four games this season. Getting that side of the ball going will be key against a defense that thrives off drive killers and turnovers. Knoxville needs to give its defense breaks, trying to control the clock and go on long drives would be huge. Trying to limit how many possessions the Bondurant-Farrar offense gets while also controlling field position would go a long way as Knoxville tries to bounce back from a couple of tough district games.
