The Colonels hail from the Southland Conference of the FCS.
The Colonels will be pretty fresh facing the Dawgs -- Saturday will be their first of the season, as they opened with a bye.
This season, the Colonels bring back a total of 49 lettermen, along with and 18 starters.
Most of the returning starters are on the defensive side of the things, with 28 guys returning with game experience.
Now that Eason is officially the guy, he can easily get more comfortable with running the offense for a full game this week against an FCS opponent.
