Washington will be going with a different starting lineup on the offensive line this week, as Erik Kohler returns to the lineup in getting his first start at right tackle. Drew Schaefer is returning to center. Senio Kelemete remains a constant at left tackle, with Colin Porter and Ryan Tolar at the guards. The return of Kohler and the switch to center by Schaefer gives the Huskies their strongest combo of the season so far.
Sione Potoae is going to be getting his first start at the Defensive Tackle. Everette Thompson is moving back outside to help cover the losses of Cameron Elisara and Talia Chrichton. Not to sure if either of them will be back until the UCLA game. That will be two true frosh starting on the defensive line (with seven freshmen having started at least one game for Washington this season) if you are keeping score at home.
Vic Aiyewa is back in the lineup but the coaches were impressed enough with the play of Princeton Fuimaona that he is going to continue getting reps with the one's. Holt commented this week that he thought he was going to become a real good football player.
Devin Aguilar is putting in a full week of practice so expect him to play a prominent role in the offense this Saturday. Goodwin, Bruns, and Polk have filled in well but Aguilar has the ability to play at a different level. The return of Aguilar adds an important tool to the Husky offense.
Jake Locker is in better shape then he was at this time last week but it is still not participating in the team session. Expect him to participate on Thursday.
Reserve S Will Shaumburger may miss the game with a concussion. Johri Fogerson remains out with a hip injury.
