AUBURN, Ala. - The Auburn football team went through a light practice in shells for a little more than an hour on Thursday at the practice fields behind the Athletic Complex, completing preparations for Saturday's Southeastern Conference game at Kentucky.

Head coach Tommy Tuberville said the Tigers have practiced well this week and appear prepared for Saturday's game against the Wildcats, Auburn's first trip to Lexington since 1995.

"We had a good practice today and the weather cooperated," said Tuberville. "We went through all phases of what we're going to do in the game. We've had good practices this week. The guys are focused and ready to go on the road again."

The Tigers focused primarily on scout team work Thursday, and also spent much of practice on special teams, working on all phases of the kicking and return games.

Auburn (6-2, 4-1 SEC) has won its last 14 games against Kentucky (2-5, 1-3) since the Wildcats' last victory in 1966. The Tigers lead the all-time series, 23-5-1, and have a 10-4 record in games played in Lexington, including six straight wins. It will be the third road game of the season for Auburn.

Saturday's non-televised game kicks off at 1 p.m. EST at Commonwealth Stadium.
