UTEP released a game week depth chart for NMSU on Monday morning, and there were no significant changes from the first post-camp depth chart that was released last week.
Wide receiver Terry Juniel will get his first career start, along with linebacker Dante Lovilette, defensive end Mike Sota, and defensive end Brian Madunezim.
Freshman defensive end Christian Richardson was out of his boot during last week’s practice, and offensive lineman John De La Rosa is also expected back sometime this week at right guard according to the El Paso Times.
Some big news on the NMSU side of things as Larry Rose III is not listed on the depth chart Doug Martin released today. Rose has been questionable for the UTEP game after sports hernia surgery, and has been reported be no doubtful for Saturday’s game.
NMSU made some wholesale changes on the defensive side, but key players like linebackers Terrill Hanks, and Rodney Butler return on the Aggies starting lineup.
UTEP and NMSU kickoff Saturday night at 6 p.m. Mountain Time in the Sun Bowl.
