Other players who travelled and dressed but did not get listed as playing were ST Tyrell Miller and ST Rashun Dixon. Also, S Justin Cox made the trip but did not dress after hurting his hamstring in last week’s game.
Not making the South Alabama trip was OG Jamaal Clayborn, who was excused for a second weekend after the death of his grandmother.
There were three different starters from game-two. WR Fred Brown and TE Malcolm Johnson had already started games this season, while S Deontay Evans made his first 2014 start. He did start in the 2013 Liberty Bowl. So there were no first-ever starters.
Those three took the places of game-two starters WR De’Runnya Wilson, Cox, and RB Josh Robinson.
New players who did not participate in the UAB game were Proby, DB Brandon Wells, LB Kelan Chairs, OL Hunter Bradley, WR Kareem Vance, TE B.J. Hammond.
Through three games KR Jamoral Graham is the only 2014 true scholarship freshman to play; and TE Darrion Hutcherson the only junior college signee to play.
