Northwestern football depth chart vs. Wisconsin: Things stay relatively solid from last week

The two-deep remained pretty much intact from the Purdue game last week

Northwestern's Week 12 depth chart featured few things of note, reflecting just one change, and it was a change already made against the Boilermakers.

Jaylen Prater, who suffered a season-ending injury knee injury against Penn State, was on last week's depth chart although he was never going to play. Nate Hall took his spot, and those changes are reflecting in this week's two-deep. An interesting note, however is that there is no backup listed for Hall.

The only other change was Garrett Kidd and Cam Dickerson alternating who they will back up.
