Alabama Depth Chart vs. Kentucky

Alabama dressed the SEC limit of 70 men for a road game and 67 saw action in The Tide's win over Kentucky in Lexington. Only back-up quarterbacks Marc Guillon, Adam Thrash and A.J. Milwee failed to play. Bama used 28 on offense, 27 on defense, and 11 on special teams.

Spencer Pennington got his first start of this season at quarterback. Tight end Greg McLain played for the first time this year after having been out with an elbow injury suffered last spring. Regulars in the Alabama lineup Keith Brown (wide receiver) and Juwan Garth (weakside linebacker) were held out with injuries.

On Bo Freelend's run from punt formation, the 11 players were listed as being in on a punt play, even though it turned out to be an offensive play.
