Shoulder pads and helmets
Days to Kickoff: 4
In Brief: Prime time practice on Sunday as the Owls went through their paces under the lights at roughly the same time they'll be kicking off on Thursday night in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Quote of the Day:
Wide Receiver Nate German: "Spring practice was definitely a long period (German was recovering from an injury at the end of the 2015 season). It was about getting mental reps, but in some ways I think it helped me because I was able to step back and really focus on getting healthy for this season. It turned out to be pretty beneficial for me. I've been trying to push myself in camp. I missed the spring and some of the summer so I wasn't able to work out with the team. I felt like I was a little out of shape coming into camp. I wanted to make sure I didn't push myself too much, but I feel now like I'm getting my legs back. It feels good and I'm excited. I'm sure a lot of other players have said the same thing, but I think we had a really good camp. I truly mean that. A lot of players stepped up that needed to and the returning players have shown a lot of leadership and showed how it needs to be done. We stayed healthy for the most part. Now it's just time to translate that (the camp performance) into a game."
