Cornerback Jonathan Cox started at right cornerback and made two tackles on the day. He was called for a five-yard unnecessary roughness penalty and a 37-yard pass interference call, which led to a touchdown on the very next play.

Linebacker Howard Hodges did not start on Saturday but contributed two tackles. He was tasked with covering the opposing team’s running backs out of the backfield.
