AUBURN - The No. 3 Auburn football team continued to prepare for Saturday's homecoming contest against Chattanooga with a workout that lasted a little less than to two hours Wednesday evening at the practice fields behind the Athletics Complex.
The Tigers practiced through cooler temperatures, but were fortunate to dodge rain that was forecasted for later in the evening, as only a few drops of rain fell late in the workout.
The practice started with special teams drills, before the Tigers moved to individual and position drills. Much of Wednesday's workout focused on work by the offense and defense against the scout teams, with more special teams drills midway through the practice.
Following practice, head coach Gene Chizik said that he was happy with the team's performance in each of the last two practices.
"I thought it was really two good days of practice," said Chizik. "I thought we were focused. We're trying to really work on the little things with our football team that we think are going to make a difference in us being a better team. I was happy with the way practice was tonight and we'll finish our preparation tomorrow."
Auburn (9-0, 6-0 SEC) will meet Chattanooga (5-3, 4-2 SoCon) in the 84th homecoming game for the Tigers. Auburn has an all-time record of 70-8-5 in homecoming contests and has won its last 18 in a row, which is the longest streak in school history.
Saturday's game between Auburn and Chattanooga will kick off at 12 p.m. CT in Jordan-Hare Stadium. The game will be televised on a pay-per-view basis.
A limited number of tickets for the game are still available. Tickets cost $40 and can be purchased online at www.aubtix.com or by calling 1-800-AUB-1957.
