Auburn continues prep for Iron Bowl

Posted: Updated:

The fourth-ranked Auburn Tigers held a 90-minute late afternoon workout in shells Wednesday at the Auburn Athletics Complex practice fields, continuing to prepare for Saturday's Iron Bowl matchup with top-ranked Alabama at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

"We had a solid practice this evening," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. "We want to stick with our routine and do what we've been doing each week. It's just a matter of being able to execute and taking advantage of things when you have them."

Tomorrow on Thanksgiving Day, the 10-1 Tigers will hold a light mid-day practice before the players and coaches join their families for holiday dinner.

The Auburn-Alabama game will be televised by CBS. Kickoff is 2:40 p.m. Central; fans should note that Tiger Walk begins at 12:20 p.m. and the Eagle Flight will be earlier this week – at 2:19 p.m. – because of Senior Day introductions. The winner of Saturday's game will play in the SEC championship game Saturday, December 7, in Atlanta.
