BYU Football Releases Depth Chart For Oklahoma State Game

Nov 20, 2023, 3:49 PM

PROVO, Utah – The latest BYU football depth chart is out as the Cougars prepare for its regular season finale against No. 21 Oklahoma State in Stillwater.

BYU is looking to end a four-game losing streak. If they don’t, the season will be over and BYU will be home during Bowl Season for only the second time since 2005.

This week’s big question on the depth chart will again be at quarterback. BYU started Jake Retzlaff last week against Oklahoma for the third consecutive week. Retzlaff had costly turnovers that prevented BYU from pulling off the upset. But he also ignited BYU’s underwhelming ground attack as the Cougars rushed for 217 yards in the loss.

BYU senior quarterback Kedon Slovis has been out since October 28 at Texas. He was a full participant in practice last week and is expected to practice this week in preparation for Oklahoma State. So that means a quarterback competition.

BYU has an OR between Slovis and Retzlaff on this week’s depth chart. They had that last week leading up to the Oklahoma game.

Changes to this week’s depth chart

The other changes on this week’s depth chart include freshman MACK linebacker Siale Esera being removed due to an injury he suffered last week in practice. He missed the Oklahoma game. In replace of Esera was senior Chaz Ah You.

Harrison Taggart and Chaz Ah You are co-starters at the MACK linebacker spot this week.

Ace Kaufusi was on the MACK linebacker depth chart last week. The freshman is now the third-string ROVER.

At safety, there was a slight change. Heading into the Oklahoma game, Talan Alfrey was on the depth chart in a battle for the second-string strong safety spot with freshman Raider Damuni. This week, Alfrey is a co-starter with Crew Wakley at strong safety.

BYU still has Ethan Slade listed as the free safety. He was banged up during Saturday’s loss against the Sooners.
