Home on the Plains: Labor Day Weekend Edition

While most of us begin to focus on the first football game in Atlanta, let us not forget about the student athletes who will be competing in Auburn this weekend. Volleyball will be hosting the annual War Eagle Invitational and soccer looks to rebound at home after tough road trip to California last weekend. Admission to all events is free so be sure to sandwich some soccer and volleyball around your football this weekend. War Eagle!
