Auburn wraps up day two on the Plains

Posted: Updated:

The Auburn Tigers went through their second team practice of the 2013 preseason late Saturday afternoon, working two and half hours in shorts at the Auburn Athletics Complex practice fields. Coach Gus Malzahn was pleased with his squad's performance in the warm weather.

"Overall, I felt our approach to practice today and our attitude and effort were good," Malzahn said. "The pace was much better. When you've been through a spring and understand what to expect from different looks, there's nothing like experience. We spent extra time with the young guys again today. We're looking forward to tomorrow's practice and putting everything together."

Earlier in the day, two seniors on the Auburn squad, Ryan Smith and Craig Sanders, received their bachelor's degrees at Commencement ceremonies. Smith was a Public Administration major, while Sanders majored in Human Development and Family Studies.

The Tigers return to the practice field Sunday afternoon for their first workout in shells. Auburn's season opener is Saturday, August 31, at Jordan-Hare Stadium versus Washington State in a 6 p.m. Central kickoff.
