There’s plenty more options.
Consider rematching some of Auburn’s impressive offense by taking a look at last week’s Ferg’s Film Room.
- SEC Country’s Justin Ferguson says even without Carl Lawson and Montravius Adams, Auburn’s defense believes it could be ‘even better’ in 2017.
- AL.com says Auburn linebacker Deshaun Davis is unsatisfied though he had a breakout season in 2016.
- 247Sports says former Auburn quarterback Tyler Queen has decided to transfer to his home state of Georgia.
- SEC Country’s Benjamin Wolk says Bo Jackson’s nephew just received an offer from Auburn and wants to be better than his Heisman-winning uncle.
- AL.com also played a quick game of fact or fiction regarding Auburn’s 2016 season.
- 247Sports says Auburn’s offense may have already found its two best receivers this spring.
Happening on the Plains
Baseball wins big
Auburn baseball defeated Kennesaw State 15-7 to finish off its season-long road trip in Georgia on Tuesday evening.
Most of the Tigers’ success came in the fourth inning when Luke Jarvis drilled a grand slam to end a 12-run inning (that was a season-high). Auburn, currently ranked No. 10 in the nation, had no trouble handing Kennesaw State a loss and completing the season sweep.
The bats were rolling for the Tigers tonight. Auburn wins!

Butch Thompson’s team will return to Plainsman Park this weekend for a 3 game series against the Arkansas Razorbacks beginning Friday night.
But first, it’s softball’s turn
Auburn softball will battle the Kennesaw State Owls on Wednesday night at Jane B. Moore Field.
The team stayed at No. 7 in the latest rankings (released Tuesday) despite earning a series win against Missouri on Easter weekend.
Similarly to the baseball team, Clint Myers’ Tigers should have no problem moving past the visiting Owls. While Auburn isn’t looking past their visitors, they are still focused on the postseason.
Here’s what senior Kasey Cooper had to say about the team’s progress in recent weeks.
