On stage: 9 a.m.-noon

Coach: Nick Saban

Players: Reggie Ragland, Sr., LB; Kenyan Drake, Sr., RB; Ryan Kelly, Sr., OL

Question Saban is sure to face: How do you adequately replace your starting quarterback, a 1,700-yard receiver, a 1,000-yard rusher and improve a defense that was shredded for 537 yards by Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl? Bama is talented, as always, but the Crimson Tide is facing more questions than usual entering 2015.


On stage: 9 a.m.-12:20 p.m.

Coach: Mark Stoops

Players: Melvin Lewis, Sr., NG; Jordan Swindle, Sr., OT; A.J. Stamps, Sr., S

Question Stoops is sure to face: How can you finish the job? The Wildcats came to Baton Rouge with a surprising 5-1 record last year, were routed 41-3 and never recovered, ending up 5-7. Offense with QB Patrick Towles is promising, but the defense must improve after allowing 407 yards per game.


On stage: 1-4 p.m.

Coach: Gary Pinkel

Players: Kenya Dennis, Sr., DB; Maty Mauk, Jr., QB; Evan Boehm, Sr., C

Question Pinkel is sure to face: What can you do to win a third straight SEC East title? The first division crown may have been a fluke, but two straight is a trend and three straight would be something approaching dominance. An experienced squad, led by junior QB Maty Mauk, makes Mizzou a legitimate contender again.


On stage: 1-4 p.m.

Coach: Bret Bielema

Players: Jonathan Williams, Sr., RB; Brandon Allen, Sr., QB; Keon Hatcher, Sr., WR

Question Bielema is sure to face: How do you build on momentum? After losing his first 14 SEC games, Bielema’s Razorbacks broke through with a 17-0 shutout of LSU, crushed Ole Miss 30-0, lost to Missouri but dominated Texas 31-7 in the Texas Bowl. For the first time in years, ambitions run high in Fayetteville.
