These NCAA participation charts are rarely 100% accurate. But fun to look at who played and who is likely to red-shirt.
73 players on the roster played. 32 did not. Andrew Tryon is not listed has having played. Maybe he’s hurt.
18 Freshman, including 8 true freshmen, played. Although I can’t see how punter Paul Jones, the Virginia Union transfer, can be a freshman. Make it 17 and 7.
Those 7 true freshmen are:
DB #17 Jamaris Hart
DB #27 Money Hunter
DB #13 Colin Janice
LB #35 Mark Johnson
DE #90 Chris Odom
RB #39 Marquis Walker (listed as DB in game notes)
LB #44 Trent Waters
Others participating by class:
17 Sophomores (18 if you count Jones)
