Game Notes

CB Chris Harris is expected to make his team-best 30th career start.

Four players expected to start Saturday who started all 12 games a year ago and have current 12-game consecutive start streaks include CB Chris Harris, and offensive linemen Tanner Hawkinson, Brad Thorson and Sal Capra.

OL Jeremiah Hatch owns the team's longest consecutive start streak at 24 games, but he is listed as the backup offensive center heading into game week.

RB Angus Quigley should get his first rushing attempts since 2008 when he ran 59 times for 309 yards (he was moved to linebacker in 2009).

QB Kale Pick should attempt his first pass since going one of two for six yards at Texas Tech in the eighth game of 2009
