It's still a few weeks till the Bulldogs open up their 20-14 campaign but the pre-season expectations keep building for this team.

Last week the Bulldogs were picked to win the conference and this week the American Coaches Football Association has the Bulldogs ranked number three nationally heading into the season. Head coach Curt Wiese is entering his 2nd season and says this year has more stability.

" I think we are at a different level right now. I have a littler more consistent staff. We don't have a quarterback battle going on this year, so those are things that are positives moving into camp and that you feel better about, but there is always areas we need to work on and get better at, and as a staff we feel good about where we are at heading into camp, but we have a lot of work to do to get where we need to be by September 6th."
