Noteworthy: South Carolina assistant Barry Sanderson is the son of former Alabama coach Wimp Sanderson. ... Alabama’s 17-game home winning streak was snapped Jan. 27 when Arkansas defeated the Tide 63-57 in Coleman Coliseum. ... Former Alabama player Robert Horry of the San Antonio Spurs will be honored at halftime. ... The game is a sell-out, which continues Alabama’s pace to break last season’s home attendance record of 189,055. The Crimson Tide is on pace to draw more than 200,000 fans.
