Depth Chart Vs. Ole Miss

Alabama opened the Ole Miss game in its traditional 4-3 defense for only the third time this season. The offense started with three wide receivers and no tight end as sophomore wide receiver Will Oakley got the first start of his Crimson Tide career and also had the most plays he has had, 38.

At one point in the game, Alabama had three middle linebackers in the game together with Prince Hall and Darren Mustin flanking Matt Collins.

Alabama will be back under Southeastern Conference roster restrictions this week. As the visiting team, Bama will be limited to 70 players dressed. The home team, Tennessee, will be allowed to dress 95 players, of which 80 will be designated as eligible to participate in the game.

Alabama meets Tennessee at 2:30 p.m. CDT (3:30 eastern) Saturday at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville. CBS will televise the game.

In last week's game against Ole Miss, Alabama had 95 players dressed and 80 were eligible to participate. However, the Tide used only 56 men. Bama played 21 on offense, 21 on defense, and 14 just on special teams.
