Northwestern has released its official two-deep depth chart for its regular season finale against Illinois, and it featured no changes from Saturday's 13-7 win over Wisconsin.

The stability on the depth chart is an encouraging sign as Northwestern looks to win its 10th game of the year against its in-state rival. One important thing to note is that safety Traveon Henry, who was listed as a first-stringer against the Badgers but did not play, is listed with the starters once again this week. Pat Fitzgerald listed him as day-to-day.

Here's the full depth chart:
