Northwestern released its preliminary depth chart before this week’s contest against Penn State. We’ll update this page more if/when we get news on injuries that have affected the team.
Notes from this week’s depth chart:
- Even though Matt Harris is not listed on the depth chart, Fitzgerald does expect him to play.
- Nick VanHoose is listed as a backup punt returner, which is interesting.
- True freshman Jordan Thompson is listed as a starter for the first time in his career.
- The offensive line is still in shuffle mode, as Hance is at LT, Mogus at LG, Frazier at RG. Northwestern is going to need their front five to be at full strength in order to slow down one of the best pass rushes in the country in Penn State.
