With the football team being on a bye this week and starting off 4-0, the Saints are looking real good with the first half of the season in the books. The defense is playing really well allowing only 10.3 points per game and the rushing attack is looking outstanding averaging 217 rush yards per game. The real focus is after the bye week, the Saints kickoff the second half of the season with the Homecoming game against Taylor, Ind. This should be a really good contest, seeing Taylor is averaging almost 37 points per game. But the Saints have a strong defense that should eliminate Taylor’s offense. Also with a balanced offense, a powerful special teams and a probable sold-out stadium, the Saints are primed to continue the winning streak and go 5-0.
