Special teams are always important, no matter who you are facing. For the Bulls on the road in what could be an ugly game to watch, it will be key they stay sharp on special teams and avoid any mistakes. Let’s see who they will facing off against in this game.

Place kicker

At kicker is senior Cody Rademacher (5’10” 189 lbs.). He is 5 for 10 in field goals this year with a long of 40 yards (6 for 6 in extra point attempts). Behind him is freshman Jackson Koonce (6’1″ 167 lbs.).


At punter is Jackson Koonce. He has punted the ball 46 times, averaging 42.2 yards per kick (8 kicks have gone over 50 yards). Behind him is Cody Rademacher.


At holder is junior quarterback Garrett Krstich (6’3″ 199 lbs.). Behind him is senior Hayden Greenbauer (6′ 212 lbs.)

Long snapper

At long snapper is junior defensive end Zach Wood (6’3″ 258 lbs.). Behind him is freshman Nicholas Avantino (6’2″ 225 lbs.).

Kick return

At kick return is sophomore wide receiver Deion Sanders Jr. (5’7″ 183 lbs.). He has 19 for 374 total yards (19.7 yards per return, very fast player). Behind him is junior wide receiver Aaron Stafford (5’9″ 164 lbs.) who has 9 for 181 total yards and junior cornerback JR Richardson (5’10” 177 lbs.).

Punt return

At punt return is sophomore wide receiver Daijuan Stewart (5’9″ 173 lbs.). He has 4 returns for just 21 yards on the year. Splitting time with him is freshman wide receiver Cedric Lancaster (5’9″ 169 lbs) who has 3 returns but for -13 yards, so expect Stewart to be the main return option here.
