AUBURN - The Auburn football returned to the practice fields behind the Athletics Complex for just over an hour on Thursday, with cooler temperatures, as the Tigers put the finishing touches on preparations for Saturday's game at Arkansas.
The Tigers, working out in shells, spent the first several periods working on special teams, and also continued to go over the game plan by working against the scout teams before finishing with a two-minute drill.
"We had a good practice today and we have to go to Arkansas with the guys that we had last week and play hard and play with consistency," head coach Tommy Tuberville said. "We had a real good week of practices, so hopefully that will transition into the game."
Auburn (4-2, 2-1 SEC) and Arkansas (3-2, 0-2 SEC) will meet Saturday at 6:45 p.m. CT in a game that will be televised by ESPN. Auburn is 2-0 in games on ESPN this season, beating Kansas State in the season opener, 23-13, before stunning then-No. 4 Florida, 20-17, Sept. 29.
The Tigers bring a three-game winning streak to Fayetteville and look to avenge a 27-10 loss to the Razorbacks last season. Arkansas enters the contest on a two-game winning and with the top rushing duo in the nation.
