Mosley pushing to be a starter

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The freshman to watch in Alabama's defense is linebacker C.J. Mosley.

In fact, it looks like Mosley may start Saturday against South Carolina at weakside linebacker. He returned an interception for a touchdown last week against Florida, and the Alabama coaches love his instincts and his nose for the ball.

Junior linebacker Chris Jordan has been slowed by a hamstring injury. He was out there during warm-ups, but is questionable for the game.
