Look for Brennan to target junior receiver Chase Rogers, who is a big 6-foot 3-inch, 240-pound scoring machine. He has 66 catches for 1,199 yards and 16 touchdowns through 11 games.

The Hornets will need big performances from sophomore running back Austin Bolton and junior running back Jesse Pernell to keep the game close.

Pernell has 180 carries for 1,125 yards and 14 scores while Bolton has 172 carries for 1,251 yards and 14 touchdowns. The Hornets have their work cut out for them this Friday.
