Central Michigan offense vs. Troy defense
• The Trojans' secondary is young and has had several mental errors this season that have led to big plays allowed, and things won't get any easier this week against dual-threat Central Michigan QB Dan LeFevour, who has completed 71.1 percent of his passes this season. LeFevour has a pair of talented receivers in Bryan Anderson and Antonio Brown. Anderson has excellent size (6-foot-5, 215 pounds) and will present a matchup problem for Trojans CBs Bryan Willis and Barry Valcin, who are undersized and struggle at times playing the ball. to play the ball at times. Brown has been tough to keep under wraps because of his quickness and ability to create after the catch. LeFevour will find a way to get them the ball and Troy can live with intermediate gains here and there, but the Trojans must limit yards after the catch and prevent the big plays Central Michigan has been able to manufacture so often this season.
