Senior defensive tackles Louis Gachelin and Christian Ferrara with senior end Josh Thomas at the end all will start. Gachelin proved a valuable asset last year compiling 8.5 sacks, finishing sixth in the Big East. The All-Big East second team choice also led the team in tackles for a loss (17) and quarterback hurries (10). Ferrara, meanwhile, compiled 31 tackles last while Thomas added 34.
"I like the number of seniors," Pasqualoni said. "I don't know when we've been more experienced than that on the defensive line."
Sophomore James Wyche will start at the other defensive end after collecting 41 tackles, the high among the group.
