The Beavers finished their fourth consecutive seven-win season in 2018, including the most victories during a four-year span since 2004-07, while ranking first in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference with just 12 giveaways and 28 takeaways for a turnover margin of +16.

BSU graduated just three offensive starters and four defensive starters following last season, including BSU’s All-America leader in defensive back Gunner Olszewski who tallied four postseason All-American honors and two preseason All-American honors. In total, BSU returns eight All-NSIC selections, including junior linebacker Gabe Ames and junior defensive lineman Josh Wleh as NSIC First Team honorees.
