Release schedule for women’s basketball, football on watch list

Good morning Tiger fans. We’re one day closer to the end of a busy work week, which means we’re one week closer to the start of college football season.

In today’s Auburn Morning Rush, baseball begins its run to another College World Series once the fall schedule is released. Auburn fans will have the opportunity to watch Auburn play two games at Plainsman Park in October.

Auburn Soccer is also hotly debated. The Tigers open the season Thursday night at home against Old Dominion, a team that won its conference championship last season. Five players were also placed on the SEC preseason watch list prior to the start of the season.

Finally, Auburn Women’s Basketball has released its schedule for the 2022-23 season. The Tigers will play most games at their home arena in over 20 years.

Without further ado, here’s a look at Thursday’s Auburn Morning Rush:

The search for another College World Series appearance begins in October when Auburn Baseball begins its fall season. As part of fall training, the Tigers will play two exhibition games at Plainsman Park.

Auburn meets their first opponent, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, who come to town on Saturday, October 15. Louisiana Tech presents an excellent challenge for Auburn, coming off a Conference USA championship and an Austin Regional appearance in 2022.

The final game will be against rivals Alabama, which will be played on Friday, October 28th. The Crimson Tide hit a deep run in the 2022 SEC tournament but failed to make the NCAA postseason. Auburn went 2-0 against The Tide last season.

Ahead of the 2022 season, five Auburn Soccer players have earned their way onto the SEC preseason watchlist, the league announced Wednesday.

ME Craven, Sydney Richards, Marissa Arias, Anna Haddock and Maddie Prohaska were added to the list. It’s the second time Haddock and Prohaska have made the list.

Auburn Soccer was also recently ranked fourth in the SEC’s preseason poll.

The Auburn Tigers kick off their 2022 season Thursday night against Old Dominion at the Auburn Soccer Complex. Game time is set at 6:30 PM CT.

Auburn went 1-1 in their exhibition schedule. On August 8 (and 9) the Tigers defeated Georgia Southern 4-1 by beating the Eagles 20-4.

Auburn lost a play against Memphis last Saturday, 2-0.

Old Dominion had a successful season that ended in 2021 with a 13-5-1 record and won the Conference USA Championship.

Auburn Women’s Basketball will begin its second season under head coach Johnnie Harris with an exhibition game Nov. 3 against Tuskegee.

After the preseason show, Auburn will then open the season with three straight home games, beginning November 10 at home to South Alabama. At that stretch, Auburn will welcome former head coach Nell Fortner back to the Plains when Georgia Tech visits Auburn on November 16th.

Auburn will play a total of 17 regular-season home games, including eight SEC games.
