Auburn Football Practice Report
Sept. 14, 2011
AUBURN - The No. 21/19 Auburn football team returned to the practice fields Wednesday night as it continued to work toward its first road game this weekend at Clemson (2-0).
The Tigers (2-0) practiced for just under two hours, moving into the new indoor practice facility for the second half of practice. The Tigers worked out in full pads, focusing on positional drills in the first part of practice before moving into special teams work and finally situational drills.
Auburn assistant head coach Trooper Taylor said the practice was a physical one as the team prepares to play in a hostile stadium for the first time this season.
"Practice was physical tonight," said Taylor. "That's the word I would use. It was a very, very physical practice tonight. Guys were really getting after it, and we actually had to pull some off because they were getting so physical. Those guys were really getting after it today, so I think the word for it."
This weekend's meeting with Clemson is a re-match from last season's 27-24 overtime thriller in Auburn. Even though Auburn came away with the win, Taylor felt both teams left it all on the field.
"It was almost like a heavyweight fight and it is really a shame that someone had to lose that game," said Taylor. "Those kids fought their tail off and they were legitimately hurt when they walked off the field. You hear the old cliché, `leave it out there,' I thought both teams left it out there."
Auburn and Clemson kickoff at 11 a.m. CT Saturday, Sept. 17, from Memorial Stadium. The game will be televised by ABC.
