Auburn wraps on practice for Ole Miss

Posted: Updated:

The Auburn Tigers completed their practices in preparation for this weekend's road game at Ole Miss with a 16-period workout Thursday afternoon at the Auburn Athletics Complex Practice Fields. 

"This is a very, very good football team, and after getting a good chance to watch them, defensively, they play extremely hard and do a good job of pressuring offenses and coming up with some big plays," said Auburn head coach Gene Chizik. "Last week they came off a tough loss to Texas A&M and had a chance to win that game a couple of different times. It's just a very different football team than Ole Miss was this time last year, in my opinion." 

Saturday's SEC road game at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium against Ole Miss is an 11:21 a.m. CT kickoff. The game is the second SEC home game in a row for the Rebels after playing their SEC home-opener last week against Texas A&M, a 30-27 loss.

Auburn leads the all-time series with Ole Miss, 27-9, and holds a 9-2 advantage in Oxford, Miss. The Tigers have won the last three meetings overall, including a 41-23 last year in Auburn. 

Auburn continues a two-game SEC road swing next Saturday, October 20, with an 11:21 CT contest at Vanderbilt. The Tigers return home to Jordan-Hare Stadium Saturday, October 27, hosting Texas A&M on Military Appreciation Day.

    With offenses becoming increasingly explosive, plugging the holes is more imperative than ever. It's no surprise Alabama and Florida top the list, but the rest of the rankings may surprise you.
