News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Planning on going to the 2016 Cancun Challenge? The tip-off times are now available!

Season tickets are available for the Women's team. They made it to the NCAA Tournament last season and are hoping to build on that success again in 2016-17.

FOOTBALL

DrZ's weekly wrap-up of the football game is up, and the Arkansas State game was much easier on the eyes than last week's game.

The staff gave their views on the plays and players of the game. There was a general consensus among most for the offensive MVP and play of the game. Defense was a bit more varied.

They came in the wee hours of the morning, but Blake has TAKES for you! There aren't many, but they're all legit.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Daniel Carlson was named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week. I'm just shocked he had to share it with the LSU punt returner. Sure, it was an awesome punt return, but Carlson was money on FGs, kick-offs, and the fake field goal.

The official site wraps up some stats, numbers, and quotes from this weekend. Of note is that Auburn has played 20 true or redshirt freshmen. So many of them have been involved in the major plays on offense and defense, too. This is a very young and talented team that has a lot of potential.

Auburn will essentially play four straight night games at home to open the season, and that's fantastic. The start time for the LSU game will be 5:00pm Central time on 24 September. It will start in the day, yes, but it won't end that way.
