Huskers Get Break in Weather; Start Work on ASU
LINCOLN, Neb. ?The Nebraska football team returned to its two-a-day practice schedule on Monday with a two-hour morning session in full pads at Memorial Stadium and a hour and a half workout on the grass practice fields north of the stadium in half pads.
"They got a real break in the weather today," Head Coach Frank Solich said. "We are hoping that doesn?t set us back. We would still like to see some hot weather as we go through two-a-days. They are working hard out there, and I think their conditioning level was pretty good."
With the season opener less than two weeks away, the Huskers began preparations for Arizona State on Monday.
"We started to work on some Arizona State offense and defense today in seven-on-seven drills and during teamwork," Solich said. "It is a little more difficult with the 105-man roster to gather a true scout team together the way we do when we have our full football team together. But in any case, we got some work done on it."
Nebraska is scheduled to continue two-a-day practices on Tuesday and Wednesday, before a single practice on Thursday and closed scrimmage on Friday at 10:30 a.m. The Huskers are scheduled for a two-hour workout in full pads Tuesday morning at Memorial Staidum and a special teams practice during the afternoon.
Players will be available to the media following the morning practice, while Coach Solich will address the media after the afternoon workout. Assistant coaches will also be available following the afternoon session.
