They will be:

  • WR Kanawai Noa (RS-SO, #9),
  • DE James Looney (RS-SR, #9), and
  • K Matt Anderson (RS-SR, #9).

That’s right—they all have something in common. They’ve all used their redshirts. Oh, they also all wear #9. Expect this to be some kind of trickeration like when Dykes did ye olde Cole LeiningerJared Goff switch for a punt.

Congrats to the three for the honor and best of luck this Saturday!
