By way of analysis, I'll hit the high points for each major position grouping. That analysis is a little thin this week, though, since there are few changes to the chart and I haven't yet seen most of the Louisiana game.

Offense

Literally no changes in the two-deep other than the omission of "OR" between Jack Cantele and Matthew McCrane, which merely reflects what we've seen on the field through two games this season. Cantele kicks everything.

I also took the liberty of swapping Steven West out for Logan Stephens since the latter has seen playing time on special teams, but the former has yet to play this season.

Defense

No changes.

Special Teams

Same as above. The "OR" has been removed from the battle between Cantele and McCrane.
