2020

6-4 isn’t a great year by Knights’ recent standards, but 2020 was supposed to be more of a rebuilding year, and it was more than many expected. The O was lights out once again, dropping more than 40 points and pushing 600 yards per game. As good as the O was, though, the D didn’t help much.

2021

Dillon Gabriel is back at QB, and the only thing stopping him from putting up 4k through the air is the fact that Gus Malzahn will push the run game. The skill positions are loaded again. The D will need to be much better, and should with the bulk of the starters returning.

If Things Go Well

12-0

An undefeated season means the Knights take out Cincinnati… on the road. Not likely, but conceivable. Gus has won everywhere he’s gone, and if this team buys in they will do some damage.

If They Don’t

8-4

The transition away from an air raid offense would have to go very badly, and the D would have to be worse than in 2020.

Prediction

11-1

The Knights will have a hard time getting past the Bearcats, who are simply loaded in 2021. But Gus will have the Knights back atop the AAC in short order.
