Auburn, Ala. -
After conducting three days of split-squad workouts, the Auburn football team practiced as an entire unit for the first time Sunday with a 21-period session in shells on the Intramural Fields. The team will have a short turnaround as it returns to the practice fields Monday morning.
"We had a good long practice today," head coach Tommy Tuberville said. "We were trying to get everybody in and nobody got very tired today because the lines were real long. We'll do this for the next week or so before cutting it down to two teams."
"It's hard to get any consistency at quarterback when they are fumbling snaps and having different centers out there and different quarterbacks. We tried to work all five (quarterbacks) in today, but we'll continue to do that to work our way down to three."
The Tigers will wear full pads for the first time during fall camp Monday when practice starts at 9:45 a.m. CT. The first two-a-day will be held Tuesday.
Auburn's Fan Day Presented by Golden Flake is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 11 from 3-5 p.m. at Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. Admission is free.
The Tigers open the 2007 season on Sept. 1 against Kansas State in Jordan-Hare Stadium. ESPN will televise the game, which will kick off at 6:45 p.m.
