AUBURN - Getting ready for Saturday's SEC home opener with LSU, the Auburn Tigers held a two-hour full-contact practice Tuesday evening at the Auburn Athletics Complex Practice Fields, in their first on-field preparation for facing the nation's second-ranked team on Saturday.
"I think it's an exciting week for our team. It's great to be able to play a game of this nature back here at Jordan-Hare. I think our team is very excited to play against a great football team. We understand the challenges ahead for us all the way around in a game like this.
"This is what college football's all about -- to be able to have the opportunity to have a very good football team come in here and see how much improvement we've made from the week before. I think our players are very excited about the opportunity. I know our coaches are, as well. I think it'll be fun for our fans. It's going to be a great evening, so we're looking forward to it."
