You know football is getting really close when the captains are named.

Well gang, looks like we’re really close.

The senior quartet of Brian Lewerke, Joe Bachie, Kenny Willekes and Raequan Williams were named captains on Thursday. It’s the second year in a row Lewerke and Bachie are named captains.

It’s also the first year since 2009 there will be four captains. Those captains were Kirk Cousins, Blair White, Greg Jones and Ross Weaver for anyone needing good bar trivia questions this weekend.

The announcement doesn’t bear too much of a shocker with two preseason AP All-American honorees in Bachie and Willekes getting the nod, as well as Williams who is highly respected in the locker room.

Eight more days everyone. Go Green!
