Depth Chart Vs. Tennessee

Alabama dressed the Southeastern Conference limit of 85 players for a league home game against Tennessee, and 53 saw action for the Tide in the five-hour, five-overtime marathon. Bama used 23 on offense, 19 on defense, and 11 just on special teams.

There were five new faces in the Alabama starting lineup–center Matt Lomax, tight end David Cavan, left defensive end Mark Anderson, defensive tackle Jeremy Clark, and strongside linebacker Derrick Pope. Lomax, a fifth-year senior, made his first career start. Anderson made his second start of the season. Pope returned to the starting lineup after not starting the past three games because of injury.
