Bowl weeks are fun — before the big game — as was evidenced by the Auburn Tigers, who practiced in Birmingham for the week. Players competed against each other in bowling and snuck in a session at the local TopGolf facility.
The school’s athletics department sent out some pictures of some of the guys having a good time while hitting a few golf balls. Coach Bryan Harsin’s form didn’t look too bad.
Unfortunately, the team’s time on the range didn’t help on the field.
Auburn’s Birmingham Bowl appearance was a chance to win in front of a pseudo-home crowd and end a four-game losing streak, bringing momentum into the offseason.
Instead, 2021 ended with a bitter defeat.
Auburn rallied from down 10 points but lost 17-13 on a late touchdown against No. 21 Houston on Tuesday. Bryan Harsin’s first season as Auburn coach ends 6-7 after the Tigers were ranked in the top 15. It’s the program’s first losing season since 2012.
Here’s a look at the team’s form on the range.
