Fresh from taking attendance during pregame warmups …
* Linebacker Darin Drakeford is dressed and working with the starters. Look for him to slide back into his role as the starter on the weak side, with Demetrius Hartsfield shifting back to middle linebacker. Drakeford missed last week’s loss to West Virginia with an ankle injury.
* Suspended wideouts Quintin McCree and Ronnie Tyler were not dressed but on the field for warmups. Both players will sit out for the second straight week.
