AUBURN -- The Auburn football team went through a quick, 11-period practice on Friday in preparation for Saturday's A-Day game at Jordan-Hare Stadium at 1 p.m. CT. The walk-through in helmets and no pads consisted of special teams work and personnel situations.
"We had a little walk through and got our personnel ready for our kicking game," Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville. "We tried to make sure everyone was organized so we can get something out of tomorrow. We're going to throw it a few more than we're going run it, obviously, with fewer running backs. Next week we'll have a little more balanced practice. We want to put the pressure on the quarterbacks, receivers, defensive backs and linebackers tomorrow.
We'll see if we can make some completions."
After tomorrow's A-Day game, the Tigers will hold their 15th and final spring practice on Wednesday, April 2.
