Game week is here, Broncos fans.

The Boise State football team released its depth chart Monday in preparation of the season opener Saturday at Troy.

It has changed little since the initial depth chart released in late July, there are some noteable names in important roles. Sophomore CT Thomas is listed as a starter at one of the three wide receiver spots — seniors A.J. Richardson and Sean Modster are co-starters at another — and sophomore linebacker Riley Whimpey is No. 1 at the weakside spot vacated by Leighton Vander Esch.

Also of note, Troy named junior Kaleb Barker its starting quarterback Monday. He backed up Brandon Silvers last season.
