Miami Hurricanes News and Notes 8/29: Miami Releases Their Opening Game Depth Chart and Both Miami and LSU Are Back

We’re one day closer, and we now know who will be on the field to start Week 1

NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Wisconsin vs Miami Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

**Miami released their opening game depth chart a day after LSU ahead of their Sunday matchup:

-Only big surprise is the omission of 5-star freshman running back Lorenzo Lingard Jr. One has to imagine Lingard will see the field at some point, and the opening depth chart makes it hard to tell when that will happen.

-Brevin Jordan has been named the starting tight end after Michael Irvin II was lost to injury. We should see both talented freshman tight ends on the field during week 1 with Will Mallory listed as second string.

ESPN put out a promo video for Sunday’s game in which they prematurely determine both teams “are back”

-It’s just silly, both teams can’t “be back” before playing a game this season. But otherwise, this promo does have me amped for Sunday.

-Get ready for plenty of the Turnover Chain once again this year.
