Depth Chart Vs. Auburn

Alabama dressed the Southeastern Conference limit of 70 players for a league road game against Auburn, and 54 saw action for the Tide. Offensively, there were a couple of mild surprises.

Alabama opened the game with no fullback and three wide receivers–Dre Fulgham, Triandos Luke, and Zach Fletcher. Matt Lomax, a fifth-year senior, got the second start of his career, his second start this year, and started at a second position. The erstwhile center opened the game at tight end. The only other tight end to see action was Clint Johnston, who had missed sevral weeks with an injury.

Dennis Alexander returned to his starting position at right guard and back-up tailback Ray Hudson played after having been held out of the LSU game.

Bama used 20 on offense, 22 on defense, and 12 just on special teams. Here are those who played with starters listed first. The number in parenthesis is the number of plays. If there are two numbers, the second is the number of plays on special teams.
