- No changes on either offense or special teams for week 2. Deshone Kizer and Malik Zaire are still listed as co-starters as are Josh Adams and Tarean Folston at running back.
- UPDATE: Deshone Kizer has been named the starting quarterback for the Nevada game
- UPDATE: Torii Hunter has been ruled out for this weekend’s game.
- Torii Hunter is still listed as “X” WR but his status is still up in the air as he goes through the concussion protocol this week.
- Big change comes at Free Safety with Devin Studstill listed as the #1 and fellow freshman Jalen Elliot listed as the #2. Last week Studstill backed up Avery Sebastian who has moved back to his #2 SS position.
- Drue Tranquill was benched against Texas but will get the start again this week at SS. Elliot replaced Tranquill in the second half against the Longhorns but now moves over to FS to back up Studstill. While Kelly and his defensive staff obviously weren’t pleased with Tranquill’s performance in the first half, it appears the staff is going to try and avoid starting two freshmen on the back end of the defense at least for now.
- Of note (possibly) Daniel Cage was listed before Jarron Jones last week even though they were listed as co-starters. That order was reversed this week.
