AUBURN, Ala. -
The Auburn football team took to the practice fields for a brief one-hour workout Sunday evening at the Athletics Complex, as the Tigers began preparations for Saturday's game against West Virginia.
Sunday's practice focused on correcting mistakes found in Auburn's 49-24 victory over Mississippi State in the Tigers' SEC opener. Auburn also worked on special teams and started scout team preparation for the game against West Virginia.
Following practice, defensive coordinator Ted Roof said that after reviewing the film of the victory over Mississippi State, he felt that the Tigers played well but have room for improvement.
"There were some good things, and some things that we're going to have to get better at," said Roof. "Anytime you get a defensive score, you're really excited about that. I thought we played well, but we were a couple of plays away from really being good. We've got to get some mistakes cleaned up this week on the practice field, and we're going to do that."
Auburn (2-0) will return to the practice fields Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. CT as the Tigers continue to prepare for Saturday's game against West Virginia (2-0). It will be a rematch of last year's meeting in Morgantown, which West Virginia won by a score of 34-17.
Saturday's game will kick off at 6:45 p.m. CT from Jordan-Hare Stadium. The game, which is sponsored by Verizon Wireless, will be televised by ESPN2.
