Defensive changes

Apparently changes are being made at certain spots after looking at the New Mexico State depth chart on Friday.

On the defensive line freshmen Donte Savage and Pierre Fils will be backups. At nose guard, Dylan Moss is listed as the starter, replacing E.J.Cannon. Jamar Cotton replaces the injured Ross Conner at a linebacker spot.

Free safety Derrick Richardson is likely out with a hamstring injury and his place Michael Zant will start. Freshman Will Morris will likely be Zant's backup.

On offense, the top two running back spots look like this, junior Marquell Colston as the starter and redshirt freshman Ronald Opetaia as the backup.
