Boise State VS UNLV Depth Chart

New, 4 comments
NCAA Football: Boise State at UNLV Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Unfortunately, the photo for this article is from the LAST time Boise State played UNLV at Sam Boyd stadium. So this is not a hint that the Black O’ Lantern helmets will be back in play for this iteration of a road matchup with the Rebels. BUT! That doesn’t mean we can’t (over)analyze what the published depth chart “reveals” for tomorrow’s game. On that note, I present the ingredients of your speculation!

Notable Changes

Objectively, the worst change—obviously—is that Zeke Noa no longer appears on the depth chart as he has had his season cut short due to an ACL tear and a broken wrist. On the bright side, the injury occurred during the the first 30% of the season. As such, it’s a possibility that he could be the beneficiary of a medical redshirt year. The injury to Noa sucks. Super hard. And we wish him a speedy recovery.

The loss of Noa becomes an opportunity for Brandon Hawkins who now appears on the depth chart. Additionally, in the presser on Monday, Coach Harsin mentioned DJ Schramm by name as another player that would have an opportunity to see the field more.

Lastly, while Ojukwu and Pierce have stayed on the depth chart every week that they’ve been out, Coach Harsin also mentioned in the Monday presser that the bye definitely aided in both of their recoveries. So, there has been some hope lent to the idea that one or both of them could see the field again soon. Possibly real soon:

Anyone see anything else of note? Let us know in the comments.

As always...GO BRONCOS!
