Northwestern week eight depth chart for Indiana

A big shakeup at offensive line for the first time this season

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

The Wildcats are back are .500 on the season after an incredible win at Spartan Stadium on Saturday and the depth chart awards standout performers on the both sides of the line. Offensively, J.B. Butler is now the starter at left guard after a solid outing, with Connor Mahoney as his backup. Also on the second string, Andrew Otterman is moved from backup center to backup right guard and Jared Thomas is now Brad North's backup.

Defensively, Ifeadi Odenigbo has finally been rewarded for his six sacks over the past two games. With Xavier Washington out with injury, Odenigbo is back to being a starter at defensive end with Trent Goens as his backup.
