Tigers Back Practicing for Title Game

Auburn, AL---Gus Malzahn and his Auburn Tigers are back on the practice field, looking forward to a date with Florida State early next month.

Gus Malzahn spent last week recruiting and going to some award shows. His running back Tre Mason also did some traveling as part of the Heisman ceremony.

Now they're back in Auburn, and back on the practice field as of Wednesday. Before that first workout, coach Malzahn spoke to the media about the return to the field.

"Our players are very excited to get back out there. We focused on our young guys pretty much so far. Tried to keep our older guys fundamentally sound. We'll transition into Florida State later in the week. But overall I really like their attitude and their willingness to get better."

And it seemed like Auburn got better each week of the season. That and a miracle or two is the reason they're getting set for a shot at a second national championship in 4 years! Both teams will work out at home this week, take a few days off for Christmas, reassemble, practice some more and then head out next weekend!
