AUBURN, Ala. — The pregame coverage is just about over, but here are a few more notes before Auburn and Arkansas State take to the field at Jordan-Hare Stadium this evening.

  • For the second week in a row, Robenson Therezie will start in place of Justin Garrett at the hybrid safety/linebacker "Star" position. With Jeff Whitaker still out, Ben Bradley slides into the starting lineup for the Tigers.
  • Surprisingly, Arkansas State didn't have a single change to announce. No departure from its starting lineup or a jersey change.
  • The temperature was much like last week, though two degrees cooler — 84 instead of 86 — one hour prior to kickoff, with hazy skies and little-to-no wind.
  • For those who have their eye on the sky, Nova will once again fly from the flag pole in the northeast corner of the stadium at the 16:00 mark on the game clock.

And be sure to check out another on-camera appearance by me. Still getting used to being in front of the camera again, so you have my apologies for any weird pauses or any time I make awkward motions with one of my hands.
