Media is only allowed to watch 15-25 minutes of practice a handful of times throughout the preseason, so seeing any part of a scrimmage is out of the question.

Fortunately, Auburn football’s official Twitter account posted some shots from the scrimmage on Monday inside Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Players reported that the defense had a big day, but summaries on the day varied overall. Auburn will be back in Jordan-Hare on Saturday, and that’s when position battles still in question will really start to be solidified. Check out these highlights:

Among top teams in the country 

Auburn soccer had its best season ever last year, and the Tigers are looking to build on that in 2017. And they’re in pretty good position to do it, too.

Karen Hoppa’s team landed at No. 10 in the United Soccer Coaches preseason rankings this week.

The season is right around the corner and you don’t want to miss a minute.

Tweet of the day

Several of the football players tweeted about how great it felt to be back inside Jordan-Hare, but Daniel Carlson’s tweet might take the cake.

It’s more of the same from the “best kicker in the country.”
