A few changes in the depth chart prior to Saturday’s game versus Utah

Heading into the 12th and final game of the regular season, BYU still has some shuffling within the depth chart.

Some of that is due to injuries — e.g., Corbin Kaufusi being out for the remainder of the season — but BYU has also made some non-injury switches as well.

Here are each of the changes in this week’s depth chart:

Left Guard

BYU started the third different player at the left guard spot this season, as redshirt sophomore Kieffer Longson got his first career start versus New Mexico State. Longson had offers from the likes of Ohio State and Florida State coming out of high school.

Keanu Saleapaga had received every start since the Wisconsin game after Thomas Shoaf was the starter the first two games of the season.

BYU’s newest depth chart has all three guys listed as co-starters, with Longson still the backup at left tackle as well.

Defensive end

With Corbin Kaufusi out, it looks like BYU will be turning to two guys to fill the void. Devin Kaufusi got the start versus NMSU and came up with a sack, but Ilaisa Tuiaki said on “Coordinators’ Corner” that Uriah Leiataua had the better game between the two.

Both guys are listed as co-starters and should each see plenty of reps.

Weakside linebacker

Riggs Powell has filled in for Zayne Anderson since his injury, but Riggs was banged up this past week and did not play versus New Mexico State. Ilaisa Tuiaki didn’t seem very high on Riggs’ chances to play Saturday, meaning seniors Rhett Sandlin and Adam Pulsipher will likely fill in.

All three of those guys are listed as co-starters.
