Initial Reactions

- The biggest changes are at corner, where Dwight White steps in as the starter. That's no surprise, since he was the one who replaced Daniel Jones against Cal. That gives Matt Harris — a true freshman who was injured on the opening kickoff against Cal — a chance to join the two-deep.

- Kain Colter and Venric Mark are both listed as starters despite being considered day-to-day. Also, Mike Trumpy is still the co-backup with Treyvon Green, despite Green's breakout performance.

- Venric Mark didn't return any kicks against Cal, but he's still listed as the starting kick returner. His backup is Stephen Buckley, who returned kicks in the opener. Tony Jones takes over as the No. 1 punt returner — he got those duties in Berkeley.

- The depth chart at receiver stays the same, other than Pierre Youngblood-Ary, who steps into a backup role, passing Kyle Prater and Mike McHugh, who were listed as co-backups last week. Youngblood-Ary figured to have a role in the two-deep coming into the season, so this is no surprise.
