New, 5 comments

Some changes this week.

NCAA Football: Northwestern at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

This week’s two deep remains mostly the same as last week’s, with a few notable exceptions. Kyric McGowan has surpassed Ramaud Chiaokhiao-Bowman as the first team Z-receiver after an outstanding performance last week. Nik Urban has also surpassed J.B. Butler as the starting left guard. Despite not receiving a carry last week, John Moten IV remains as the second team RB behind Solomon Vault, with Drake Anderson not appearing in the two-deep despite the significant game-time he received against Michigan State. Fredy Wyatt is also listed as the starter at defensive tackle, ahead of Alex Miller.
