AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn coach Gus Malzahn's plan for the first two days of fall practice was to work his veterans together early, then work the newcomers late.

Sunday will be different.

"We're going to put everybody together for the first time," Malzahn said.

Auburn will also practice in shoulder pads for the first time, though the first day in full pads is Tuesday. Still, "it will be very good for us to evaluate the guys up front."

So far, it's been good for Malzahn.

"Overall, I feel like our approach to practice today and our attitude and effort was good. The pace was better, and we definitely challenged our guys for that," he said.

And he gave all four of his quarterbacks a chance to impress.

"The two new guys did feel more comfortable," Malzahn said of Nick Marshall and Jeremy Johnson. "They were able to relax a little bit more and play football."

Veterans Kiehl Frazier and Jonathan Wallace also took their turn. Sunday, Malzahn said, "we'll mix and match a little more than we have before."
