Here are some pregame notes and observations:

  • Minkah Fitzpatrick, Shaun Dion Hamilton and Bradley Bozeman are Alabama’s captains vs. Arkansas
  • The 1992 national championship is being honored before the game. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, who was a tight end on the team, made the trip to Tuscaloosa. Legendary coach Gene Stallings was able to make the trip as well. There was a huge cheer for both Swinney and Stallings when their names were called.
  • Defensive back Tony Brown (knee) is dressed and going through warmups. Brown showed no signs of being limited. Brown lined up with the second-team defense.
  • Defensive back Trevon Diggs (foot) is dressed and going through warmups. He fielded punts. Diggs showed no signs of being limited. Diggs warmed up with the second-team defense.
  • J.C. Hassenauer is back at backup center with Brandon Kennedy (ankle) out.
