AUBURN -- After an off-day Thursday, Friday was another double-practice day for the Auburn football team. The Tigers held a spirited two-hour morning workout in full pads, and followed with a 90-minute afternoon session in helmets and shoulder pads.
"I thought practice was good today," said Auburn head coach Gene Chizik. "There were some things we tried to clean up from the scrimmage, and there was some physical contact out there today, which was good to see.
"We did a goal-line drill for the first time. It was fun to see those guys tackle on the goal-line and the offense punch the ball in. Overall, we had a good day.
"Again, we are stressing consistency. Defensively, that's not giving up big plays obviously, and offensively, our number one goal is protecting the football, being able to run it and protecting it while we run it."
Saturday, the Tigers will scrimmage at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Sunday is Auburn's Fan Day, presented by Golden Flake, from 2-4 p.m. at Auburn Arena. Admission is free.
The Tigers open the season Saturday, September 1, facing Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at Atlanta's Georgia Dome.
Friday morning, Auburn announced two different three-game football mini-packs. The mini-packs, as well as the season tickets, are currently the only opportunities to get tickets for the LSU, Arkansas and Texas A&M contests.
The Blue Pack includes tickets for the home opener vs. Louisiana-Monroe on Sept. 15, No. 1-ranked LSU on Sept. 22 and 10th-ranked Arkansas on Oct. 6 for just $205. With the Orange Pack, fans get tickets for Texas A&M on Oct. 27, New Mexico State on Nov. 3 and Alabama A&M on Nov. 17 for $160.
All three-game mini-pack seats are located in the upper level of Jordan-Hare Stadium. Season tickets and six-game mini-season tickets are still available in lower and upper level seats.
