Auburn Football Practice Report: Thursday, November 22

AUBURN – The Auburn Tigers held a Thanksgiving morning workout in shorts at the Auburn Athletics Complex Practice Fields, wrapping up preparations for Saturday's Iron Bowl at Alabama before dismissing for family dinners Thursday afternoon. The Tigers will leave Friday afternoon for the Iron Bowl contest.

"It's a very unique game, so I think that there's an extra focus and an extra intent in terms of just being ready to prepare.  Our team looks at this game differently," said Auburn head coach Gene Chizik. "We don't take that lightly.  We feel a great sense of responsibility because of so many people that will be affected by this game around the state come Sunday morning. "

This is the 77th renewal of the Iron Bowl rivalry; the game will be televised by CBS with a 2:30 CT kickoff. The Iron Bowl will also be the final collegiate game for 13 Auburn seniors: Daren Bates, T'Sharvan Bell, DeAngelo Benton, Emory Blake, Jonathan Evans, Philip Lutzenkirchen, Onterio McCalebb, Ikeem Means, Anthony Morgan, Ashton Richardson, Travante Stallworth, John Sullen and Jamar Travis. They come into the contest with a career record of 33-18.
