Before any players come to mind, the point differential shows that the Saints are off to a similar start to their 2012 season.
After starting out 2-0 with a point differential of +66, they played in five games that were decided by a touchdown or less and lost three of them.
Though Jacob Kraut has done a good job in replacing Jamari Smith, Sandalwood brings a talented box. Kraut (Rutgers commit) will have to get past Rivals250 member LB Kain Daub and Rivals three-star DE Blake McClain - both committed to Florida State Fletcher Two-star QB Luke Medlock will be one of the key players to watch in this game. The Florida International commit will need to get off to a strong start and establish the passing game to give Kraut possible running lanes. Medlock will have to find time to get the ball to WR Kalif Jackson
This game will also test the Senators' offensive line. At 5'11, 240 lbs., Kraut will also need his blockers to contain the Saints' strong front seven. Running backs that big generally don't go to ends to set up big plays
The Saints have lost the last three times they've faced Fletcher - and that has been a sticking point for Saints fans in this heated rivalry.
