– The running back situation changed a little this week, with Treyvon Green now listed as the co-backup with Stephen Buckley, rather than as the co-starter. Mike Trumpy is the starter. However, I wouldn't put too much stock into that, since Buckley got the most carries against Iowa. That seems likely to continue this week.

- Ian Park and Matt Frazier are now listed as co-starters at guard. Frazier replaced Park during the game against Iowa.

- Malin Jones is now the backup superback, replacing Mark Szott. Jones was probably technically the backup in the Iowa game, but NU rarely plays more than one superback, so don't expect to see much of Jones on the field.

- Sean McEvilly, who is coming off of injury and played in the last game but didn't start, is listed as a backup this week at defensive tackle. NU will likely continue to ease him back into more playing time.

- Dean Lowry is back on the depth chart after leaving the Iowa game with a "lower body injury."

- Venric Mark is completely off the depth chart. That doesn't mean he'll play at Nebraska, but it's certainly not encouraging.

- Matt Harris is now listed as the starter at corner, but he started against Iowa, so that's no surprise.
