Senior Willie Moseley moves from back up outside linebacker and is now starting at inside linebacker ahead of sophomore Jake Stockman and senior Scott Pettigrew. Senior Isaac Baugh moves back to outside linebacker after starting the last few games at strong safety, while junior Okoye Houston has been elevated from a back-up role to the starter at strong safety. Also, sophomore Kendall Roberson will back up Khalil Mack at outside linebacker.
On offense, junior Jimmy Gordon will split time at tight end and fullback and junior Alex Dennison will see more time at tight end and possibly in the backfield at tailback.
Junior Bo Oliver, who has missed the last three games because of a knee injury, is doing more in practice according to coach Jeff Quinn, but is questionable for Saturday’s game against Pitt.
