AUBURN — Auburn football will once again be without linebacker Owen Pappoe in the Iron Bowl. His fellow team captain Chandler Wooten will continue to start for the Tigers, as Pappoe was not in uniform as the team warmed up to face No. 2 Alabama (10-1, 6-1 SEC) at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

However, the Tigers might have Kobe Hudson back, as the sophomore receiver was warming up after missing the trip to South Carolina with a head injury. Auburn (6-5, 3-4) quarterback T.J. Finley said Tuesday that Hudson had been cleared for non-contact practice activities at that point in the week. Hudson was the team's leading receiver until missing last week's game.
