Alexander, Franks, Peterson, Thomas and Tupe are newly elected members this season.
"I think the players take a lot of pride in selecting our leaders who serve," Franchione said. "This is a great group and I continue to be impressed with their effort, dedication and leadership. I am pleased with the work the entire team is putting in this spring."
Eight members of the council were split into two teams of four to act as captains for the Maroon and White game Saturday at 2 p.m. at Kyle Field. Bryant, Elder, Taylor and Tupe will lead the Maroon while Dodge, Franks, Harrington and Wallace will lead the White team.
Neither Bryant nor Harrington will play in the game as they are both sitting out the spring to rehab injuries.
The two sets of captains drafted their teams Wednesday as well. The Maroon won the coin toss and selected first.
With the top pick the Maroon picked senior offensive tackle Corey Clark. The White then picked senior offensive guard Chris Yoder.
