Auburn, Ala. -
A day removed from its first scrimmage of spring drills, the Auburn football team worked for 90 minutes in shells Sunday on the Athletic Complex practice fields.
Tigers' head coach Tommy Tuberville recapped his observations from Saturday's scrimmage after having an opportunity to watch film.
"After watching the scrimmage yesterday, it was pretty successful in terms of a lot of young guys getting some reps," Tuberville said. "We've made progress but we've got a lot of work to do on both sides of the ball. We didn't do a whole lot on the defensive side of the ball this scrimmage, but we'll do a lot more next week and give them a better chance. Offensively, we had too many balls dropped. Seven or eight balls were dropped early in the scrimmage. I thought the quarterbacks did pretty good."
Most of Sunday's 16-period session was spent on position work, special teams, and playing catch-up.
"Overall, it was a good day today," Tuberville said. "We worked on a lot of things that we were behind on. We'll give them tomorrow off and start back again on Tuesday."
Auburn returns to the practice fields on Tuesday with a session starting at 7 a.m. CT on the Athletic Complex practice fields.
