Last Word: Paul Chryst

Paul Chryst says his team is not taking a 'what do we have to lose' approach, nor does he believe they are more focused on this game just because of where the opponent is ranked.

In terms of depth, look for Hubie Graham to be ready to go Saturday at Notre Dame. Shane Gordon is another story. Gordon, who has been out the last two games, seems questionable at best for Saturday. From the sounds of it, all signs are a go for Joe Trebitz to make his first career start.

Also, along the lines of linebacker, while Chryst didn't chime one way or the other on the health of the position, or who would back up Trebitz, he did say the team will travel with five linebackers.
