Tigers Utilize Good Weather

The 17th-ranked Auburn football team went through a two-hour practice session on Wednesday preparing for Saturday's game at Arkansas. The trip to Fayetteville will mark the first of three road games that the Tigers will play in their last four contests of the season.

''We had good weather today and went in shorts and shoulder pads,'' Head coach Tommy Tuberville said. ''We tried to spend a little more time on the kicking game today. We've been able to get a few more of our injured players back, so we've been able to get our starters off the kicking teams and our normal guys back on those teams.''

Tuberville also discussed the status of junior Mark Brown, who has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury after recording a career-best 13 tackles against Mississippi State on Oct. 6.

''Injury wise, Mark Brown's not 100 percent yet, and we'll have to wait and see how far he progresses before Saturday before he plays or not,'' Tuberville said. ''Everyone else was out and practiced today. James Callier's got a nagging groin injury, but he's practiced both days and should be ready to go by Saturday.''

Auburn leads the all-time series with Arkansas, 6-3-1, and holds a 2-1-1 advantage in Fayetteville. Arkansas won the last meeting in Reynolds Razorback Stadium, 34-10, in 1999. Saturday's game will kick off at 11:30 CT and will be televised by Jefferson Pilot Sports.
