AUBURN - The Auburn football team staged its final workout prior to the season opener against Kansas State, working out in shells Thursday morning for just under an hour and a half at the practice fields behind the Athletics Complex.

The Tigers spent several periods fine-tuning the special teams before moving to team drills, finishing the workout with a two-minute drill.

"It was a good last workout," said head coach Tommy Tuberville. "We got everything in place and got everybody's mind going in the right direction. We did break a sweat out there today. It was hot. Today we worked like we normally do on a Thursday - about 40 minutes on the kicking game, go through all the scenarios, which went a little bit longer today because it's the first game, about 45 minutes of team and then two-minute drill."

Auburn opens the 2007 season Sept. 1 when the Tigers host Kansas State at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The game begins at 6:45 p.m. CT and will be televised nationally by ESPN.

Auburn is 11-1 in night games at Jordan-Hare Stadium since the 2000 season, with the only loss coming in the 2005 season opener against Georgia Tech. The Tigers have beaten four nationally-ranked teams during that span, including last year's 27-17 victory over eventual national champion Florida.

Individual tickets to the Kansas State, South Florida, Mississippi State, New Mexico State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss and Tennessee Tech games are currently available. To purchase tickets log on to or call 1-800-AUB-1957.
