Odds and ends from the Plains

AUBURN, Ala. -- Jonathan Evans will start at right linebacker in place of Eltoro Freeman for Auburn.

Alabama doesn't have any lineup changes, but running back Terry Grant didn't make the trip.

The 1989 Auburn team was introduced before the game, and many of the players from that SEC championship team were in attendance. But it was former Auburn coach Pat Dye who received the loudest ovation -- by far.
