Welcome to the party:
UB has some true freshman on the depth chart
Another redshirt freshman, Tony Daniel, will be the holder on special teams.
Wheel of linebackers:
Mack is replaced by Dalton Barksdale.
Barksdale used his red shirt in 2010 and spent 2011 filling out the scout team. Barksdale saw action in five games, recording a tackle against Eastern Michigan. His time on the field was spent mainly with the special teams. Now he will be starting against the #6 team in the nation.
Jake Stockman replaces Jaleel Verser.
Last season as redshirt freshman Stockman had a big impact on special teams and also played some minutes with the defense. He looked very solid in the spring game, putting up seven tackles.
According the the game note safety Isaac Baugh is now our other outside linebacker.
Last year baugh started 11 games and recorded 36.
Because Baugh is over as a linebacker Okoye Houston gets the start at safety.
Two headed tight end:
