Colorado rotated Aaron Haigler and Isaac Miller at right tackle on Saturday against Oregon State.

Miller got his second straight start, while Haigler came off the bench. Haigler had started the first five games (three at tackle, two at guard).

"We knew we were going to rotate them both and it just depends on different things we were doing in the game," CU coach Mike MacIntyre said. "They're doing well. I thought they protected well the other day. Both of those young men are getting better every week. They really work hard, they're really smart, they're big, they're athletic. They're just getting better and better."

Miller played just 24 snaps, but had his highest grade of the season. Haigler played 43 snaps.
