Colgate first, Bucknell last in preseason poll


Bucknell has to rebound from a 3-8 season, but has pieces in place with an experienced quarterback, strong offensive line and key returnees on defense. Brandon Wesley enters his fourth season as the team's starting quarterback, and has the benefit of returning his top two wide receivers (Victor Walker and Josh Brake), All-Patriot League fullback Travis Friend and four starters on the offensive line. The defense boasts four preseason All-Patriot League picks, with Sean Sellers and Tracey Smith on the line, Evan Byers at linebacker and Matthew Steinbeck at defensive back. The unit gave up 21 points or less seven times last season.
