CSJ Conference Preview: Big South

College Sports Journal announces their 2018 Fearless Prediction for the Order of finish of the Big South Conference.

The Kennesaw State Owls are still a relatively young program, but their impressive run in 2017 – and the fact that they graduate little of their quad – means Brian Bohannon’s squad is picked to be the Big South Champions in 2018.

Kennesaw State’s success came in part thanks to the emergence of QB Chandler Burks, who exploded in 2017.  The Douglasville, Georgia native ran for 18 TDs while passing for 9 more, amassing 1,103 yards on the ground and 1,307 more through the air.  Even more important was his ball protection, limiting himself to 4 interceptions on the season.
