In terms of pure news, there wasn’t much out of our meeting with coach Willingham today.
He clarified that all of the starters who were available last week — including linebacker E.J. Savannah, who had been bothered with a neck stinger — will be available Saturday. The only player with a new injury that might keep him out is linebacker Matt Houston, who has been used mostly on special teams.
Willingham also said that with the start of the new school quarter, the freshman receivers Devin Aguilar and Anthony Boyles are still awaiting their ACT scores are now certainly out until winter at the earliers. And that despite the start of fall classes, no walk-on players have been awarded scholarships … although that might happen later.
