"We really don't have a lot of choices, so I don't see a lot of change there," he said. "The guys that have been playing will continue to play. We may move them around a little bit, but I'm not even sure of that."
"(Dent) looks like he's going to be able to make the trip, but we'll see how he progresses here during the week as we run a little bit more," linebackers coach John Jancek said. "Dowtin has been cleared and is ready to go."
Dowtin missed the past two games after suffering a ligament tear in his finger that required surgery following Georgia's loss to LSU. Dowtin had earned regular work as a reserve linebacker and was third on the team in tackles at the time of the injury.
"We really missed Marcus not having him for the last two ballgames," defensive coordinator Willie Martinez said. "Marcus has been one of our playmakers – a kid that can run, athletic, smart. He really was playing really well."
