Season Outlook:

Olivet is seeking their 10th straight playoff appearance this season and their schedule has some quirks that will make the quest for 10 straight interesting. Assuming they get off to a good start with three of their first four games being at home, that will make a tough stretch of three straight conference road games easier to manage.

Ending the season with Berrien Springs (who have knocked Olivet out of the playoffs the last two years) and traditional rival Battle Creek Pennfield will mean if the Eagles haven't hit 6 wins by week 8, they'll have to earn their playoff berth against a tough opponent.
