AUBURN, Ala. — We're a little less than half an hour away from kickoff of today's game between No. 4 Auburn and top-ranked Alabama. Before it starts, here are a few pregame notes from Jordan-Hare Stadium.

  • Not much to report today, as the only alteration from Auburn's lineup card has Jake Holland starting at middle linebacker over Kris Frost.
  • Alabama had a pair of changes to its defense: Denzel Devall will start at "Jack" while Cyrus Jones will start at corner.
  • Nova flew from the ramp above section 12 in the southwest corner of the stadium at the 21:00 mark on the pregame clock.
  • One hour prior to kickoff, it was 60 degrees, with sunny skies accompanied by a steady breeze.

And I'm back with one more pregame standup, where I offer my last thoughts heading into today's matchup.
