Saturday’s game — actually, halftime of Saturday’s game — is the halfway point of the Warriors’ 13-game regular season. With Wyoming as another rugged opponent, head coach Nick Rolovich is hoping that several developing players, particularly on the defensive line, will be ready if needed.
“You want to make sure you’re still growing your roster as far as developing your players and getting them ready,” Rolovich said following today’s two-hour workout. “This is the time when guys have to start standing up and stepping up if this is their opportunity this time of year. Guys needs to be ready to play.”
Rolovich noted that Kendall Hune, who joined in July, has earned a significant role in the defensive-line rotation.
“You saw Kendall Hune get better through the first part of the season,” Rolovich said. “Guys like Justus Tavai have to be ready to play. You can never have enough defensive linemen.”
