On Monday, the Texas Longhorns released the team’s depth chart for Saturday’s contest against the Oklahoma Sooners in the Cotton Bowl.

And while depth charts over the first several weeks lose relevance at an increasingly fast rate, there are several noteworthy developments in this week’s edition.

  • Belatedly, sophomore Brennan Eagles is the starter at the Z position over senior John Burt after being much more productive over the first five games.
  • Senior Jeffrey McCulloch is still technically the starter at Rover, but he’s rapidly losing playing time to sophomore Joseph Ossai’s versatility and the emergence of sophomore Juwan Mitchell.
  • The biggest story is in the defensive backfield, where sophomore Kobe Boyce is still listed as the first co-starter at one cornerback position despite the fact that sophomore D’Shawn Jamison started against West Virginia and had two interceptions. Boyce played sparingly.
  • Even with the return of sophomore BJ Foster, senior Brandon Jones is listed as the starter at nickel, though the participation report from the West Virginia game had both as starting in that position, with only one safety.
