Week 1 depth chart: McEvoy, Stave co-listed at QB

Welcome to Depth Chart Monday, where the mighty "OR" rules the day.

J.J. Watt, Patrick Peterson named honorary captains for Saturday's game

6

This is pretty cool: Two of the NFL's top defensive players will be honorary captains for Saturday's AdvoCare Texas Kickoff between LSU and Wisconsin at NRG Stadium in Houston. Houston Texans All-Everything defensive end J.J. Watt played for Wisconsin from 2008-10 (no duh), while Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson was a LSU Tiger for those same three seasons. Another fun fact: Watt has two brothers, Derek and T.J., currently on Wisconsin's roster, while Peterson has a brother, Avery, who plays wide receiver for LSU.

NRG Stadium putting down turf for Wisconsin-LSU

+

Here's our built-in excuse in the event things don't go well in Houston: it was the damn turf! Sarcasm aside, this makes sense considering how much the Texans (the building's main occupants) have invested in the field. It is kinda weird they play two days before the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff and then their next game (the regular-season opener) doesn't come until Sept. 7, but again, this is understandable.
