Auburn, Ala. -
The fifth-ranked Auburn football team practiced for 30 minutes Sunday evening correcting mistakes from Saturday's 65-43 victory over No. 12 Arkansas.
After reviewing game film from Saturday, Auburn defensive coordinator Ted Roof said the Tigers stressed the need for playing a full four quarters and not allowing big plays down field.
"We were disappointed with some of the things we allowed to happen in the game," Roof said. "But I'm very proud of the team's resiliency. They found a way to make big plays to flip field position and flip the game at the end."
Auburn will take Monday off before returning to practice Tuesday to begin preparations for No. 6 LSU, which is coming off a 32-10 victory over McNeese State Saturday night.
LSU comes into game averaging 188.3 yards rushing per game and is scoring 26.7 points per contest this season.
"They (LSU) are a very talented team," Roof said. "You can't really sink your teeth into one aspect of their offense and just focus on that because they do so many things well. They run the ball very well and they have very talented receivers."
Auburn (7-0, 4-0 SEC) and LSU (7-0, 4-0 SEC) meet at 2:30 p.m. CT Saturday in Jordan-Hare Stadium. The game will be televised nationally by CBS.
Auburn and LSU are the only unbeaten teams in the Southeastern Conference. Auburn is 7-0 for the first time since 2004 and has its highest ranking in the Associated Press poll since a No. 5 ranking in 2006.
