Northwestern week nine depth chart for Ohio State

The only big changes come on the defensive side of the ball

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

Northwestern is on a three game winning streak, the offense is firing on all cylinders and the week nine depth chart represents that. There are no changes on the offensive side of the ball, but there are a couple of changes, including one new starter, on defense.

Nate Hall is now listed as the starting SAM linebacker for this week's game against Ohio State, Joe Jones is listed as his backup, but both will likely see plenty of playing time in Columbus. The depth chart also welcomes back Marcus McShepard as a cornerback, he's listed as Trae Williams' backup. Finally, Xavier Washington is once again healthy, and is the backup for Ifeadi Odenigbo.
