The depth chart remains unchanged from last week, but look for more playing time for wide receiver Jacorey Warrick as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury that sidelined him against Oklahoma State and limited him against Oklahoma.
Defensively, potential changes could come at cornerback considering the struggles of Holton Hill last week. However, Kris Boyd gave up a long pass play with an awful mistake and Sheroid Evans isn’t a strong tackler, so there aren’t a lot of great options here.
Boyd started at conerback last week, as did PJ Locke at nickel back and Dylan Haines at safety, despite the depth chart from earlier in the week listing Brandon Jones and Kevin Vaccaro as the starters at those positions.
At Fox end, Naashon Hughes got the start even though he was listed behind both Breckyn Hager and Malcolm Roach at the position.
It’s also possible that Armanti Foreman seems more time on kick returns, as he returned two kicks for 55 yards against Oklahoma and showed more decisiveness than Boyd and better vision than Devin Duvernay.
