- Obviously, the easy place to start here is the revolving door at tailback, as Fozzy Whittaker becomes the third starter in as many weeks for Texas and earns the coveted mantel of Flavor of the Week at the position. Three weeks, three new flavors!
- Since the revolving door at tailback was basically anticipated, the bigger news perhaps is the ascension of Mike Davis to a co-starter in just two weeks of action. The opportunity came with Chiles a little dinged up after catching a pass on a crossing route and Davis took full advantage. It's not likely that he's going to turn in 100-yard receiving games every week, but there's little doubt at this point that he looks like a major contributor moving forward.
- Another true freshman wide receiver, Darius White, is now listed on the depth chart for the first time as the back-up to Malcolm Williams at split end.
- With the season-ending injury to back-up left tackle Luke Poehlmann, Mark Buchanan, who has received no significant action to this point in his career, slides into that role. It's the second major injury along the offensive line this fall after Tray Allen re-injured his foot and it's starting to wear on the depth at the position -- things could start getting ugly if another starter goes down.
- EBS is now listed as a co-starter with Barrett Matthews at the tight end position. A false start against Matthews hurt the team against Wyoming and though he's been adequate as a blocker along the line of scrimmage, he hasn't been an asset in the passing game. But then, neither has EBS to this point in his career.
- Converted linebacker Ryan Roberson is now the starter at fullback and appears to have taken over for Jared Norton as the Jumbo package lead blocker, a role he succeeded in against Wyoming clearing the path for Cody Johnson.
- Another blown coverage by Chykie Brown has finally manifested itself on the depth chart, where Aaron Williams is now listed first in their co-starter relationship. Last week, Williams was listed as a co-starter with Curtis Brown at the other cornerback position. Kenny Vaccaro is now longer a co-starter in the nickel, with Curtis Brown taking over that role. However, Brown's continued struggles at times being a physical tackler make it unlikely that he will see any playing time there.
- A third-string tackle last week, Calvin Howell is now listed as the co-back-up with Ashton Dorsey at nose tackle, a move further inside for the redshirt freshman.
- No listed changes on special teams, although Malcolm Williams did make at least one appearance as the deep man with DJ Monroe.
