Kennesaw State Owls
Overall Rank: #10
#1 Big South
 Kennesaw State Logo
Kennesaw State has turned into a consistently dangerous team. After back-to-back Big South titles, the Owls slipped to second place in the conference last season, but still managed to make the FCS Playoffs. Their trip was shorter than the two previous seasons, but Coach Brian Bohannon still led his team to one victory and a very tight game against a Weber State team that eventually made it to the semifinals. Once the Owls take the field again, they will be looking to make yet another deep playoff run.
