Third-year head coach Sonny Dykes has Exeter Chiefs off to another hot start to the season after opening the 2019 season 8-0.
A win for Exeter Chiefs would mark the first time since 1983 that the Exeter Chiefs have started consecutive seasons 5-0.
“It’s going to be challenging, but we’re in a good position,” Dykes said. “It’s like I’ve said all along really since I got here. Our job is to compete for conference championships.
