Welcome to the 2017 Independent Football Preview.  With no conference affiliation, these teams can customize their schedules.

2017 Independent Football Preview

BYU Cougars – Can the defense keep teams under 20 points per game?  If so, the Cougars could be headed for a great season.  Tanner Mangum is back at QB and hopes to improve on last season where their four losses were by a combined 8 points.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish – Brian Kelly felt the heat this offseason.  He changed both coordinators who he hopes can right the ship in South Bend.  QB Brandon Wimbush is getting a lot of hype.  The first two games of the year against Temple and Georgia will tell you how the Irish will be this season.

Army Black Knights – Plenty of starters back to make a return trip to a bowl and they hope to win the Commander in Chief trophy this season.  A bowl win last year has expectations up for Army.

Massachusetts Minutemen – They’re young and need to find playmakers.  In 2016, they scored 23.3 a game while giving up 35.5.  There’s plenty of room to improve in 2017.
