Auburn Football Practice Report-Wednesday November 19, 2008


Recommended Posts

AUBURN – The Auburn football team moved to Jordan-Hare Stadium for

Wednesday afternoon’s practice, working out for close to 90 minutes in

cooler temperatures as the Tigers continue to prepare for a Nov. 29 game

at Alabama.

The workout started with special teams practice, before splitting into

offensive and defensive units to work against the scout teams. The first

and second units also practiced against each other in skelly drills.

Following practice, head coach Tommy Tuberville said that the team

spent much of the practice working on fundamentals.

“It was a nice, cool afternoon,” said Tuberville. “We went into

the stadium. We’ve always done this for the last game. It’s a little

bit of a change of atmosphere. We use the 40-second clock. There’s

less room but it gives you more of a game sensation. I think we’ve

done it now for seven or eight years and it’s worked out pretty well.

If we were playing here we wouldn’t be able to do it, but when we’re

playing a road game we’re able to do it.”

Auburn (5-6, 2-5 SEC) will travel to Tuscaloosa to meet No. 1-ranked

Alabama (11-0, 7-0 SEC) on Saturday, Nov. 29, at 2:30 p.m. CT. The game

will be televised nationally by CBS.

The Tigers currently own a six-game winning streak against Alabama,

narrowing Alabama’s lead in the all-time series to 38-33-1. Auburn has

won all four of its games played in Bryant-Denny Stadium, and has a 6-0

record all-time in games played in Tuscaloosa.


The Tigers will return to the practice fields Thursday morning.
