Auburn, Ala. - Just 12 hours following a lengthy, physical practice a day prior, the Auburn football team returned to work Thursday morning. The full-pad workout consisted of 18 periods with a majority of the time spent working against the scout team.
"It was a good practice today," said Tommy Tuberville. "There was a lot of enthusiasm out there. It was a little more upbeat with cooler temperatures at first, but then they kind of hit the wall. We worked about 50-60 percent on Kansas State today and did a lot more scout team work, which we'll do the next 11 weeks."
Auburn opens the 2007 in nine days when they face Kansas State in Jordan-Hare Stadium on Sept. 1 at 6:45 p.m. CT. The game will be televised nationally by ESPN.
The Wildcats return 48 letter winners from last season's 7-6 squad, including 21 on offense, 25 on defense and two on special teams. Kansas State is led by second-year head coach Ron Prince.
The Tigers returns to the practice fields Friday afternoon at 5 p.m. CT.
