Tiger's Sunday Practice Report

AUBURN – The No. 10 Auburn football team began preparations for the
Tigers' non-conference game against ULM Saturday with a split squad
workout on Sunday in the indoor practice facility due to heavy storms in
the area.

The Tiger defense worked out in the indoor facility first while the
offense watched film and had meetings. The two units then switched, with
the offense practicing indoors while the defense met in their position
groups and studied film.

The workouts focused both on correcting mistakes found during
Auburn's 35-27 victory over No. 12 South Carolina on Saturday, as
well as giving the Tigers a chance to start preparing for their contest
with ULM.

Following the practice, defensive coordinator Ted Roof met with the
media to discuss his team's performance during the game against South
Carolina. Auburn limited the Gamecocks to just seven points during the
second half of the game and forced turnovers on South Carolina's last
four possessions as the Tigers rallied from a 20-7 deficit to win.

"I felt that we responded well in getting the takeaways at the end of
the game, because we hadn't done a very good job of that this season
up to that point," said Roof. "Some years are just like that. But it
was good that we were able to do that and come through at the end.

"It's good that we've had to be on the field at the end of the
last three ball games when it's come down to the last play. There's a
lot of value in that so when it keeps happening to us, we develop some
confidence that we can shut the door and win the football game."

The Tigers did shut the door, forcing two fumbles and intercepting two
passes during the fourth quarter while not allowing a third-down
conversion in the second half. Auburn's defense has allowed just one
third-down conversion in the fourth quarter and overtime all season.

The Tigers will take Monday off before returning to practice on
Tuesday.

Saturday's game between Auburn (4-0) and ULM (1-2) will kick off at
11 a.m. CT from Jordan-Hare Stadium. The game will be televised by
ESPNU.
