Penn State Releases Official Depth Chart for San Diego State Game

Penn State now sits at 2-1 (1-0 in Big Ten) as they welcome the San Diego State Aztecs to State College this Saturday afternoon.

On offense there are a few changes.  No surprise here but Saquon Barkley is now officially listed as the second running back behind Akeel Lynch.  DaeSean Hamilton moves to the starting F-wide receiver spot with DeAndre Thompkins shifting back.  Geno Lewis will now start at the Z-wide receiver spot.  Still no sign of Adam Breneman at tight end and Kyle Carter is still listed as third.  Paris Palmer reclaims the starting left tackle spot with Andrew Nelson listed as backup.

No changes on defense because why change what’s working.  On special teams, Chris Gulla earned the starting punting job after his great performance against Rutgers.  Nick Scott moves up to the top kickoff return spot.

Here’s the full depth chart.
