- The Huskies released their depth chart (or seating chart, if you prefer) in anticipation for their match up with Auburn this weekend. The most notable thing here in my humble opinion is Redshirt Freshman Jaxson Kirkland being listed as the starting right guard. Right guard was the offensive line position that seemed to be up for grabs after the Huskies moved Nick Harris to center, and it looks as though Kirkland has won that battle. Also, as Jude notes, it’s great to see Trey Adams listed as the number one left tackle heading into Saturday. You can also find Auburn’s depth chart in Jude’s article.
- The Athletic’s Christian Caple put together a nice profile on the Huskies junior defensive back Myles Bryant.
- Are you in need of an awesome Huskies hype video? Of course you are. And man, did the Huskies video team deliver. This is a much watch for Huskies fans.

- Auburn received some disappointing news this morning when it was announced that Redshirt Junior Linebacker Richard McBride will miss the season after suffering a neck injury in practice last week, according to AL.com’s James Crepea. All injuries are terrible, but head and neck injuries are particularly troubling, hopefully McBride is able to make a full and complete recovery.
