Auburn football: Reliving the spring game, taking on Kennesaw State

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 ways to relive the A-Day game, baseball’s beatdown of Kennesaw State and softball’s Wednesday night home matchup. 

More spring memories 

It’s Wednesday.

You’ve made it through a couple of days of work or school, but you’re still bummed about the end of football. Worse yet, the weekend is still a couple of days away.

The good news is there are lots of ways to revisit your memories from the 2017 spring A-Day scrimmage. For starters, you can check out some more images of the spring game action.

And if you’re still eager to relive some of a busy Saturday on the Plains, allow Aubie to help you out.

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.


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.

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.
