Auburn Football Practice Report
Dec. 17, 2009
AUBURN - The Auburn football team held its fourth bowl practice prior to its New Year's Day appearance in the Outback Bowl with a workout that lasted a little less than two hours Thursday at the practice fields behind the Athletics Complex.
The Tigers worked out in full pads for the second straight day. The team practiced in dry but chilly conditions, as the 5 p.m. start time provided no warmth from the sun.
The Tigers started the practice with special teams drills, then moved on to individual and position drills. Following more special teams work, the latter half of practice consisted primarily of the offense and defense working against the scout teams.
Following practice, offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn said that he was pleased with the performance from his unit during the workout.
"We had a good practice," said Malzahn. "Our guys were really focused today. We came out and we threw the ball quite a bit. Our quarterbacks did well. They threw the ball on time and our line did a solid job up front."
The Tigers will return to the practice fields Friday at 2 p.m. CT.
Auburn (7-5) will meet Northwestern (8-4) in the 2010 Outback Bowl on Jan. 1 in Tampa, Fla. The game will kick off at 10 a.m. CT in Raymond James Stadium and be nationally televised by ESPN.
