Tuberville also noted that the Tigers are healthier going into this week's game than they have been in recent weeks.
''We will be close to full strength this week,'' Tuberville said. ''We have had a lot of players injured over the last few weeks, but we are as healthy now as we have been for awhile. Robert Johnson and Dontarrius Thomas both practiced today and are nearly full speed. Travaris Robinson, Ben Nowland and Brandon Johnson also all participated in practice and will be available Saturday.''
