AUBURN -- Auburn held its second officiated scrimmage of the 2012 preseason Saturday afternoon, a two-hour session at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
"I thought today was very productive," said Auburn head coach Gene Chizik. "I thought we got a lot accomplished - somewhere between 70-80 plays. We got a lot of special teams work in today, which was very good -- to get a lot of that captured on film and do some great teaching off of it as well.
"We've got a long way to go. Again, we're talking about inconsistencies that we're trying to eliminate, and we didn't do that today. We stayed about the same.
"We've got to eliminate some things. On offense, there are some focus points in the mental part of the game - illegal formations, false starts - and we've got to get those things fixed. Defensively, we had some good things happen, but the explosive plays we're giving up still - we've got to eliminate those.
"Today was a good time to get some film and do some good evaluation and assessment. We're getting great effort and there's great competition on both sides of the ball. We're going to keep working at it."
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.
