The Tigers have open date this weekend, but they haven't been off. They've been studying, opening up position battles and preparing for Thursday night's game at Kentucky.
Rudy Ford had a big game, allowing defensive coordinator Will Muschamp to move players about. He says practice this week is going well as he tinkers with the defense some more.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn isn't ready to "flip the page" to start working on Kentucky at practice. He's working on Auburn.
Auburn's head coach said the Tigers had a "very spirited practice" Tuesday, moving forward a day after dismissing receiver Duke Williams. "Our team will be fine. We will move on."
Coach Gus Malzahn dismisses D'haquille Williams after a season-and-a-half with the Tigers, saying the receiver failed to meet the expectations of the program.
The Auburn football player, and team captain, won national recognition for his service to the community at the school where he has been a student teacher, and where he has been mentor to the kids he's been around.
Rudy Ford returned two kickoff returns for 81 yards, including a career-best 58-yarder, and chipped in with a career-best 14 tackles in Auburn's win over San Jose State.
Offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee says five plays of 20-or-more yards was a plus in Saturday's win. Now, he wants even more.
