Southern Miss

Some surprises show up on Southern Miss depth chart

Southern Miss football released its depth chart for Saturday's 9 p.m. season opener against Mississippi State in Hattiesburg.

According to the chart, five starting spots remain unresolved - quarterback, right guard, kicker, running back and nose tackle.

One surprise development is that senior Michael Smith has moved back to defensive end after he has spent much of the year working at defensive tackle.

Harrison Central product Brandon Farmer appeared on pace to regain his spot as the starting left guard, but he is only listed as the backup center.

Starters are in all caps and "or" indicates that the coaching staff has yet to settle on a starter at a position:
