Key newcomers: Peyton Spencer (rising sophomore, OLB), Cole Council (rising senior, WR/OLB) and Joey Giardina (rising freshman, QB)
Key position battle: With seven returning starters on both sides of the football, there isn't one position battle going on. Instead, Gerber said it's a matter of repetition of what they are doing.
