Gabe McKenzie headed to defense?
Gene Chizik told reporters tonight that senior Gabe McKenzie (again) has been experimenting at defense end this week. He may become an option on third downs ... possibly taking snaps away from freshman Dee Ford.
McKenzie played end to begin the 2008 season, but finished the season at tight end. He's been playing "3" in Gus Malzahn's offense. That's what I call the utility back position and it's one typically handled by Mario Fannin.
McKenzie sightings have been few and far between this season.
