AUBURN - The No. 23 Auburn football team held its final practice prior to Saturday's home game against Ole Miss, working out for a little more than an hour in cool conditions Thursday morning on the practice fields behind the Athletics Complex.

The Tigers spent the first four periods working on special teams, before spending much of the rest of the practice working against the scout teams. Auburn concluded the practice with a two-minute drill and field goals.

"We had a good, spirited practice," head coach Tommy Tuberville said. "We have had good practices this week. The guys are fired up. I think mentally we've really gotten back into it more than I would have expected after last week. It's been a good week. I think we're going to play well. Hopefully we'll improve from how we've been playing."

Auburn (5-3, 3-2 SEC) will host Ole Miss (2-6, 0-5 SEC) Saturday at 5 p.m. CT in a game that will be available on pay-per-view. The Tigers won a close game last season in Oxford, as two late field goals by John Vaughn helped Auburn pull away from a 17-17 fourth quarter tie for a 23-17 victory.

Pay-per-view will be available in the states of Alabama and Mississippi to cable subscribers and small dish owners who subscribe to DirecTV (Channel 695) or Dish Network (Channel 458). Fans should contact their local cable provider or small dish provider to order the game.
