Matt Luke has announced his two-deep for Saturday’s game in Houston.

With less than a week to go before Ole Miss kicks off in Houston against Texas Tech, we have an updated depth chart. Barring injuries or last-minute tweaks, this will be these will be the starters that take the field on Saturday.

The three-deep doesn’t look very different since the last time we updated at the beginning of fall camp, but there are some changes.

The most notable shift is on the offensive line, where three-year starter Jordan Sims has lost his job to redshirt freshman Ben Brown. From the reports coming out of practice, that has more to do with Brown’s success than it does Sims’ failures.

“[Brown] is a big, strong, physical guy,” Matt Luke told The Oxford Eagle earlier this month. “He’s smart. He’s a good athlete. He plays hard. When you say offensive lineman, that’s what he looks like.”

There’s also been a ton of shuffling at linebacker. For now, sophomore Mohamed Sanogo is plugged in as the starter in the middle, with three-star true freshman Kavontae’ Ruggs manning the outside. Detric Bing-Dukes and Josh Clarke, who began camp as the starters, aren’t even listed. Expect plenty of fluidity there, though.
