Kirby’s pre-game commentary:
On how this game will be different defensively, especially against Young:
“We have to force him to make bad decisions. He played very well against us. We have to make it inaccurate. We have to try to keep it in our pocket. We have to affect the quarterback.
Where they can find an advantage in attack:
“Hopefully we can find an advantage on the line of scrimmage, the running game, the shots. There are great clashes between our players and their players, but we have to win some of them and I think we will see today where it is.
Team Captains: Zamir White, Jamaree Salyer, Jordan Davis, Nakobe Dean
