The program has released an updated depth chart for Saturday's game in Evanston.

The million dollar question, as always, is who is Boston College's starting running back this weekend. That answer has changed once again with Andre Williams returning to the two-deep alongside Rolandan Finch. Sophomore Tahj Kimble backs up Williams / Finch.

James McCaffrey has been added to the depth chart this week at backup wide receiver, along with senior Donte Elliott. Both McCaffrey and Elliott are listed behind Spiffy Evans.

On defense, sophomore defensive end Mehdi Abdesmad has jumped Brian Mihalik for the starting defensive end spot. Abdesmad looked good in the win over Maine. Is this Spaz / McGovern mixing things up on the line to figure out the most effective starting lineup up front?

In the secondary, C.J. Jones has won back the starting BC job over Ameer Richardson while freshman Justin Simmons has earned the backup SS job over Spenser Rositano. As for Rositano, he's been moved from backup SS to starting FS, bumping fellow sophomore Sean Sylvia. Both Dominique Williams and Josh Keyes are off the two-deep this week.

On special teams, Donte Elliott is no longer listed as the backup punt return man, replaced by James McCaffrey.

Dave Shinskie? Still backup long snapper.
