Juggling act: Penn State releases newest depth chart ahead of Indiana matchup
Penn State was a perfect 8-0 going into this past week. But, so was Minnesota.
Minnesota had the home-field advantage, the crazy environment and the talent to top it all off. The Golden Gophers got the best of the Nittany Lions, 31-26.
So, what’s next for Penn State? Indiana, a team that is 7-2 this season and is ranked No. 24 in the country by the AP. It’s the first time in 25 years that the Hoosiers have been ranked in the AP’s poll.
Yes, seriously. Twenty-five years.
On Monday, to start the week, Penn State released its first depth chart ahead of the matchup against the Hoosiers:

The entire depth chart can be found in the tweet above. Of note, Penn State has been juggling its depth chart at the running back position for weeks. For the first time all season, going into the Minnesota game, Noah Cain was listed as the No. 1 RB.
There was still an “OR” attached with his name and the other RBs, but regardless, Cain was at No. 1. Well, that spot has already changed just a few days later.
After Journey Brown’s 124 yards and two touchdowns against the Golden Gophers, he has no taken over the top spot. But, again, there is an “OR” next to his name. Brown is followed by Cain at No. 2, Devyn Ford at No. 3 and Ricky Slade at No. 4.
Also, of note, Penn State defensive tackle Antonio Shelton is listed as the starting defensive tackle. He returns from a suspension. PJ Mustipher is now listed at No. 2.
Penn State-Indiana is set for a noon ET start on Saturday at Beaver Stadium. The game will be televised on ABC.
