That's it! Final: Auburn 45, Arkansas 21.
Thanks for sticking with us through the delay. Furthermore, thank you for supporting the Tigers. This is your team! War Eagle!
With 2:18 left in the game, Auburn takes over on downs on its own 30.
Corey Grant speeds past Arkansas defenders and puts Auburn inside the 5. The next play, Grant punches it in to extend Auburn's lead, 45-21.
Artis-Payne looked a little slippery when he took Auburn to its own 47:
A notable observation, Arkansas QB Brandon Allen is now wearing gloves on both hands to combat the wet conditions. Footing doesn't seem to be compromised on either side due to the rain.
With the kick we are under way...again.
In case your forgot, Auburn kicked a field goal with 9:55 left in the game. Auburn will now kickoff. Auburn has two timeouts, Arkansas has all three.
Players have returned to the field as promised. Only change to the plans is that it's raining and for a time was raining really hard. We should be ready to crank things back up in a couple of minutes. Thanks for sticking with us.
It was just announced to those in attendance that both teams will start warm-ups at 7:10 p.m. ct and will be given ten minutes to prepare for restart. Fans slowly making their way back to their seats. No rain has fallen at Jordan-Hare.
Here's something to keep you busy while the clock ticks down: complete box score and stats. Auburn just 9 yards shy of eclipsing the 500 yard mark in total offense.
Correction, the scoreboards are now showing 26 minutes and counting. It may be safe to assume some type of activity will commence once the clock hits zero.
No rain has fallen since the start of our weather delay. Lightning is the only thing keeping us from finishing this game. The marching band is slowly making their way back to their positions but no word on estimated start time.
Can anyone remember the last time Auburn had a weather delay? Can you remember who we were playing? How about the outcome of the game? This may jog your memory:
Bad new folks. The game has been temporarily suspended due to lightning in the area. Seek shelter in stadium concourse and buildings around stadium. If you're at home, sit back and relax but stay with us. Updates to follow.
Auburn's drive stalls but is capped off by a 45 yard field goal from Carlson.

Daniel Carlson's punt can be described in one word: bomb. Carlson's first punt of the year travels 62 yards and pins Arkansas on its own 7.
Here's Jeremy Johnson's pass to Duke Williams that moved Auburn to 21 on the scoreboard:

The 2014 Auburn Football Intro video that just played at Jordan-Hare Stadium to welcome the Tigers to the field:
Loud and proud, the Auburn University Marching Band takes the field for the first time in 2014. Can you hear them?
The correct Jordan-Hare Stadium time is 2:01. We're one hour from starting the season. For fans outside the stadium, start making your way inside.
We're updating our live Auburn gameday gallery on Facebook. Check out Tiger Walk, the team entering the field, locker room and student section:
It's two hours before kickoff and the Tigers have entered Jordan-Hare from Tiger Walk. Simultaneously, students are sprinting to their preferred spots in the student section. Auburn football is here!
Here's your weather update. It was pouring for about five minutes and then it stopped only for the sun to come out and heat everything back up. Obviously, it's going to be steamy. Barring more rain, the field won't be wet by kickoff.
