The Auburn Tigers held two practices Thursday, dodging the raindrops at the Auburn Athletics Complex practice fields. PGA champion Jason Dufner addressed the team after practice.
"We had a good practice this morning," Coach Gus Malzahn said after the morning workout. "I challenged them, and today they rose to the occasion. I really liked our attitude and liked the way we're flying around. We're learning to practice; that's a big thing."
Malzahn announced that three former walk-ons have been placed on scholarship: defensive back Blake Poole, wide receiver Dimitri Reese and running back Chandler Shakespeare.
Friday, the Tigers hold a single afternoon practice. Auburn's season opener is Saturday, August 31, at Jordan-Hare Stadium versus Washington State in a 6 p.m. Central kickoff.
