Snaps critical against MSU
Observer Staff Report
Last year against Michigan State, a blocked punt sparked the Spartans to a 42-point first half. Against Kansas, long snaps were frequently off-target. One off-target snap led to a blocked extra-point attempt.
Senior long snapper and tight end Dan O'Leary must be sure to keep his snaps on target Saturday against the Spartans. Punt coverage must also be perfect as Michigan St. possess a big play returner in senior Gary Scott.
"We have worked the heck out of Dan O'Leary," head coach Bob Davie said. "I think our protection is a little but better than last year. We have devoted an unbelievable amount of time to that."
