Auburn football: The countdown continues, Kasey Cooper shines again
Welcome to SEC Country’s daily War Eagle Wakeup, a rundown of everything happening in Auburn football and Auburn Tigers athletics with Lauren Shute. Here’s a look at what you might have missed on Friday and over the weekend:
The countdown continues
Remember when the final seconds ticked off the clock in the Sugar Bowl and panic set in?
You were thinking about ways to survive and what would fill your time until Auburn started fall camp in August.
Well, time flies when you’re having fun — or when your team is picked to have a great 2017 — but it’s just about time for fall camp.
Auburn fans have about a week to accomplish everything on their to-do lists and shift gears to football season. But if you need any encouragement or inspiration, just keep track of all of the countdowns across the internet.

A sweet homecoming
Kasey Cooper got the best of her former teammates at Jane B. Moore Field over the weekend.
The Team USA star helped the national team earn back-to-back wins over four current Auburn players on Saturday in Auburn.
Cooper was responsible for a trio of hits, including a solo shot in her last at-bat of the evening. Team USA posted a 10-2 win over the Alabama All-Stars (on which Victoria Draper, Kendall Veach, Ashley Swindle and KK Crocker were playing) and finished the night with a 7-0 shutout.
In early August Team USA will be competing in the Pan American Championship Qualifier in the Dominican Republic.
Grayson Murray had quite the weekend in Opelika.
The 23-year-old notched his first PGA win at the Barbasol Championship on Sunday.
With the victory, Murray received a check for $630,000 and more importantly entry into the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow (in Murray’s home state of North Carolina) and a two-year exemption on Tour.
