AUBURN - Following its second day of two-a-days, the Auburn football team hit the field again Friday morning, practicing in full pads at the Intramural Fields. Friday marked the final practice before the team's first scrimmage on Saturday. Head coach Tommy Tuberville was pleased with his team's performance, despite practicing in hot early-morning conditions.
"It was another hot day," Tuberville said. "We had a good practice and worked hard, but it was hot. The guys are sore and tired. We're going to meet, eat, rest and have a walkthrough this afternoon to get ready for the scrimmage tomorrow. Hopefully we get something out of that.
"We'll start to get a few guys back. Guys are beat up and sore, but that's part of two-a-days. We've got about five more days and then we'll start school and start cranking it down to get ready for the first game."
Auburn first of two scrimmages will be held Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m. at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The scrimmage is closed to the public.
Auburn's Fan Day Presented by Golden Flake is also scheduled for Saturday from 3-5 p.m. at Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. Admission is free.
