Auburn-West Virginia pregame -- updated 7:26 p.m.

Auburn didn’t take the field during pre-game until 15 minutes were left on the pre-game clock. I’m guessing kickoff will be closer to 7:45, as all ESPN games tend to do.
  • Some interesting stuff on offense. Jason Bosley was snapping the ball to Kodi Burns during warmups, while Ryan Pugh snapped it to Neil Caudle. Perhaps there’s been some offensive line reshuffling?
  • Caudle was the second quarterback to take snaps, by the way.
  • QB Chris Todd made the trip and is in uniform. He threw a little before the game but didn’t take many snaps.
  • CB Jerraud Powers is in uniform. It looks like he's going to give it a try.
  • Funny set-up for West Virginia’s student section. There’s a small group in two sections in the corner by one of the end zones. The rest look like they’re in the upper deck behind the Auburn bench. (You can see the large yellow section in the picture).
UPDATE (7:18): Bosley is still playing center with the first team. Pugh is playing right tackle.

Caudle still taking snaps with the second team.

LINEUP UPDATE (7:26 p.m.): Sophomore Mike Berry will start at right guard for Byron Isom. Berry is normally the backup left tackle. I’m pretty sure Isom was in street clothes during the pre-game.

UPDATE (7:35 p.m.): Pre-game temperature is 41 degrees and dropping. That already makes it tied for the coldest game Auburn has played in since 2000. The 2000 Iron Bowl had a low of 41 degrees as well.
