WVU Releases Depth Chart for No. 15 Virginia Tech

West Virginia unveils the depth chart ahead of Saturday's matchup versus No. 15 Virginia Tech
Publish date:

On Monday night, the West Virginia University Athletics Communications Department released the depth chart ahead of Saturday's matchup versus No. 15 Virginia Tech. 

There were a few changes following the 66-0 win over LIU on Saturday. Tight end Mike O'laughlin is not listed in the two-deep. He has been out since the early stages of fall camp. TJ Banks has filled in for the absent O'Laughlin and is now named the starter, although he has been starting since the opener. Also, Lance Dixon gets the starting nod at weakside linebacker over Exree Loe, and Austin Brinkman has solidified himself as the long snapper.

However, practice during the week will dictate the final depth chart on game day.
