What to Watch For
Running Back Depth
With Zavier Scott out for the season, the running back depth took a big hit. With the injury, the Huskies have few options left at running back. In the preseason, Nate Hopkins left the team and Donevin O’Reilly tore his ACL. True freshman Khyon Gillespie has already been redshirted as well. That leaves starter Kevin Mensah, true freshman Dante Black and true freshman walk-on Lavarey Banton.
