Alabama fans made it through a grueling offseason.

The Crimson Tide hosts Middle Tennesee State at Bryant-Denny Stadium for its first game. SEC Network has the call at 6:30 p.m. CT, as Nick Saban begins his pursuit of an eighth national championship. He did not release a depth chart Monday, but the list of starters has arrived for Alabama. Two five-star freshmen — one on offense and one on defense — got the nod to go against MTSU.
