Roanoke's Around the SEC: Missouri Week

We play in a conference so tough that even good teams can get massacred on a bad day. Ask Kevin Sumlin about that – and then remember he hung 52 points on Steve Spurrier opening night.

Roanoke's Around the SEC: Bye week

Last year our staff made particularly good use of our bye weeks. It is easy to forget that on our way to a 9-4 finish, we stood at a shaky 3-3 in 2013 at our half-way point. We had modest wins over Austin Peay, UMass and UAB - and demoralizing losses to Ole Miss, South Carolina and Missouri.
