Missouri Valley spring football outlook

(STATS) - If a defensive coordinator in the Missouri Valley Football Conference starts to believe his team is facing a better quarterback with each week this season, he won't be far off the mark.

The top seven teams in last year's standings return their starting signal-callers, led by the co-champions, South Dakota with Taryn Christian and North Dakota State with Easton Stick. Indiana State also returns its starter and Southern Illinois returns its late-season starter. Missouri State is the only team beginning anew.

The MVFC will be exceptionally strong in 2017, led by national title contenders NDSU and SDSU.
