The Auburn football team spent an hour and a half practicing under the lights inside Jordan-Hare Stadium Wednesday night in their next to last practice session of the week.
"We had a good practice tonight," Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville said. "We wanted to go inside the stadium because it has better lighting. This will be the last night practice we have. We'll go in the morning tomorrow."
The Tigers (7-4, 4-3 SEC) spent a portion of practice working on the kicking game and fundamentals during their workout.
"We did a lot on the kicking game, we wanted to get that on film," Tuberville said. "We worked on different situations we might see in the game. Since we've got so many days until we play we don't want to get too many repetitions in some areas."
Tuberville added the players are looking forward to the weekend off after playing 11 consecutive weeks this season.
"The guys are fired up about it," Tuberville noted. "Some of the them are leaving tomorrow at noon. They hadn't been home in a while. The attitude has been really good. We'll practice tomorrow and come back ready to go on Sunday."
Auburn takes on Alabama (6-4, 4-3 SEC) Saturday, Nov. 24, in a game that will be televised nationally by ESPN. The game is set for a 7 p.m. kickoff. Alabama leads the overall series history with a 38-32-1 record. The Tigers hold a 6-2 record against the Tide in Auburn.
Auburn returns to the practice fields Thursday at 8:50 a.m.
