The Auburn football team held its 13th practice of the spring Thursday in Jordan-Hare Stadium, practicing in full pads for just under two hours. It marked the final practice prior to Saturday's A-Day game at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Auburn started the practice with field goals before moving to individual and group drills. The Tigers conducted more special teams drills midway through the practice and the offense and defense worked against each other for the remainder of the workout.
"I think we got a lot of things done," said head coach Gene Chizik. "I thought again, it was a productive day. We did good things on both sides of the ball. For practice 13, I thought the energy was up. They were flying around and playing hard today. It went back and forth. Everybody did some good things, everybody did some things that weren't so good. I think at the end of the day it was very productive."
