About the Big Red: Cornell had the worst rushing offense in the FCS last season. Expect that to change. It will be a much different look offensively for the Big Red, now that standout QB Jeff Mathews is gone. Under new OC Roy Istvan, Cornell will run the ball a lot with Jr. Luke Hagy. He is superb in all facets: running, catching and pass protection. FS Rush Imhotep and DE Justin Harris are playmakers on a defense that struggled last season. Cornell gave up 35 points per game last year.
