Greg McMackin said that Kealoha Pilares is expected to start at slotback in Saturday’s road game against New Mexico State. McMackin said Pilares had a good practice today. Pilares moved from running back during spring training, and was the backup slotback in the opener against Florida. After that, he moved to running back. Although he sometimes practiced at slotback, he was used almost exclusively as a running back in games. He missed the past two games because of a sprained foot. McMackin said Daniel Libre, David Farmer and Leon Wright-Jackson will rotate at running back.
