Auburn, Alabama —

Nova, War Eagle VII, knew it was important to keep the lure used in Saturday’s Iron Bowl flight in pristine condition, putting only one scratch on it when he landed during the pre-game ceremonies. The lure, along with the jesses (straps around the eagle’s ankles) are in the final days of being auctioned online – at – to support the three-fold mission of the Southeastern Raptor Center, a division of the Auburn University of College of Veterinary Medicine. Bidding closes at 11 a.m., Wednesday, Dec. 4. Auburn won the game 34-28 in what some are calling the greatest “second” in college football.
