Auburn football: Counting down to 2017 season; headlines for this week

Welcome to SEC Country’s daily War Eagle Wakeup, a rundown of everything happening in Auburn football and Auburn Tigers athletics with Lauren Shute. Today, we discuss the countdown to football season and recent headlines. 

Countdown to 2017 

Spring ball finished up. Exams were taken.

Families traveled to the Plains to watch students walk across a stage and transform into alumni.

All is quiet on the Auburn campus. And that means the impatience is already picking up. Tiger fans are eager to read preseason headlines and see who is going to step into a bigger role in 2017.

As of Wednesday, there are 108 days remaining until the start of football season.

But the countdown creator from Tuesday was just too good not to share.

There’s lots of days left until kickoff. And still a few ways left to share the Kick Six again during the countdown.

So, keep watching Auburn fans. You may have a little while longer to wait … but you’ll have some pleasant reminders along the way.


Happening on the Plains 

There’s not much happening this week.

Auburn baseball is attempting to rebound from two straight SEC series sweeps and Clint Myers’ softball team is getting ready to host an NCAA regional.

And host is the key word here.

The Tigers will take on East Tennessee State University on Friday afternoon. While Auburn struggled and fell out of the SEC Tournament early last weekend, there is a plus side to playing at home.

Check out these numbers and see why Auburn softball might have more success at Jane B. Moore Field this weekend than it did in Knoxville, Tenn.
