Any changes for the Boilers this week?

NCAA Football: Purdue at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

It was a rough one this past week at Michigan State, but we’re back home at Ross-Ade Stadium to face our Most Hated Rivals. The Hawkeyes also enter with a ranking, and after losing something like 18 straight against ranked teams Purdue is 2-0 against the top 25 this season. Here is a look at the depth chart this week.

OFFENSE

QB: 1. David Blough 2. Elijah Sindelar

RB: 1. D.J. Knox 2. Markell Jones. 3. Tario Fuller 4. Alexander Horvath

WR: Jared Sparks OR Terry Wright

WR: 1. Rondale Moore 2. Jackson Anthrop 3. Keyron Catlett

WR: Isaac Zico OR Jarrett Burgess

LT: 1. Grant Hermanns 2. Michael Mendez

LG: 1. Shane Evans 2. Dennis Edwards

C: 1. Kirk Barron 2. Viktor Beach

RG: 1. Dennis Edwards 2. Bearooz Yacoobi

RT: 1. Matt McCann 2. Eric Swingler

TE: 1. Cole Herdman OR Brycen Hopkins 2. Darius Pittman

Officially there are no changes offensively, and that is a testament to how lucky Purdue has been with injuries this year. Among the skill players here only Catlett doesn’t play a ton, as even Burgess gets in situationally.

DE: 1. Giovanni Reviere 2. Semisi Fakasiieiki

DT: 1. Lorenzo Neal 2. Ray Ellis OR Alex Criddle

DT: 1. Anthony Watts 2. Jeff Marks

DE: 1. Kai Higgins 2. Robert McWilliams III

LB: 1. Markus Bailey 2. Tobias Larry

LB: Cornel Jones OR Derrick Barnes

LB: 1. Derrick Barnes 2. Jaylan Alexander

CB: 1. Antonio Blackmon OR Kenneth Major 2. Kamal Hardy

FS: 1. Navon Mosley 2. Simeon Smiley or Elijah Ball or Cory Trice

SS: 1. Jacob Thieneman 2. Brennan Thieneman

CB: Tim Cason OR Dedrick Mackey

Again, there are no defensive changes. We’re mostly here for the redsshirt watch. Willie Lane has played in four games now and is at his limit if he is going to hang on to his redshirt. Elijah Ball is at three gamesand has one left to use.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Punter: 1. Joe Schopper 2. Jake Herr

Kicker: 1. Spencer Evans 2. J.D. Dellinger

Kickoffs: 1. Spencer Evans 2. Myles Homan

Long Snapper: 1. Ben Makowski 2. Ryan Sadkowski

Holder: 1. Joe Schopper 2. Jake Herr

Kick Returns: 1. Rondale Moore 2. D.J. Knox

Punt Returns: 1. Rondale Moore 2. Jackson Anthrop

Schopper had a career long 74 yard punt on Saturday and it looked to be a game-changer, but Purdue’s soft coverage led to Michigan State’s first touchdown after it. At the time it flipped the field and made it look like we were going to have a 6-6 tie at the half.
