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.

psu depth chart

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.
