It’s a beautiful, cool fall day in Tuscaloosa for the top-ranked Alabama football team’s rivalry game with Tennessee.
There was a lot more orange than I expected as I entered the Bryant-Denny Stadium area. Tennessee returned some of its allotted tickets.
There are no bowl game officials or NFL scouts at this team. That’s strange. The college playoff folks, however, are hear.
There’s not change to the depth chart from last week, even though coach Nick Saban said Cyrus Jones would start at cornerback for Bradley Sylve (ankle) and Eddie Jackson (ankle).
Defensive lineman Dee Liner is not listed. Saban said Liner may take of the redshirt and play.
Starting nose guard Brandon Ivory was not out for pregame warmups and backup Darren Lake was announced as the starter.
