Auburn, Ala. -
On the heels of its first scrimmage of the fall, the Auburn football team returned to work on Sunday evening with a brief practice in shells on the Intramural Fields. The Tigers received a much needed break from the weather as cooler temperatures prevailed, thanks in part to thunderstorms that converged on Auburn earlier in the afternoon.
"It was a short practice," Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville said. "Pretty cool weather (tonight) unlike the normal two-a-days. The guys bounced around good."
After having a chance to evaluate Saturday's scrimmage, Tuberville was pleased with the effort, but stated there is room for improvement.
"We've got a lot of work to do after the scrimmage (yesterday)," Tuberville said. "We're young in a lot of areas and had a lot of mental mistakes. There was a lot of good effort. We gave out about half way through, which is normal. We have a chance to continue to get better."
Auburn will practice for the 12th consecutive day Monday at 6 p.m. CT on the Intramural Fields. Tuberville noted after practice that the Tigers will hold one more two-a-days session either on Tuesday or Wednesday.
The squad's first off day of fall camp will be on Thursday, which is the first day of classes for the fall semester on the Auburn campus.
The Tigers kick off the 2007 season on Sept. 1 against Kansas State in Jordan-Hare Stadium. ESPN will televise the 6:45 p.m. game.
