WAC spring football roundup

New, 4 comments

Several other WAC teams have started spring practice, so we thought we would check in with our less-talented conference brethren to see what's happening.

Nevada
Nevada concluded its spring football with the annual Silver and Blue scrimmage on Saturday. Colin Kaepernick rushed for two scores and completed as many passes as he had rushing attempts. Is there a running back debate?

Passing: Kaepernick 5-15, 74 yards, 0 TDs, 1 Int
Rushing: Kaepernick 5-146, 2 TDS; Lippincott 3-12;
Sadly, no.

San Jose State
San Jose State's first spring scrimmage was enjoyable...if you find defense and short field goals enjoyable.
The offense scored its only touchdown of the 60-play scrimmage on a 9-yard pass by Myles Eden to running back Cameron Island. Jared Strubeck, who handled all of the kicking responsibilities in the scrimmage, made field goals of 26 and 29 yards.
On the plus side, they found a punter.
Right now, it looks like Jared Strubeck will be our punter," coach Dick Tomey said. "He’s done some real good things..."
...none of which could be quantified by the stat sheet.

Louisiana Tech
LaTech's spring ball is underway, and the Bulldogs are adding a twist to the offense this year...scoring!

The Bulldogs installed portions of the red zone offense...and also worked on maximizing how many points their offense can produce when given the opportunity.

They are currently at 3.5 points.

Utah State
A little snow couldn't deter the Aggies from starting spring ball. Competition? Yes. Snow? No.
"With the way we get to practice these first few days without pads, it's a lot easier to throw and catch, and it looks everyone will be in position to make the tackle, "USU head coach Brent Guy said.
He went on to add: "It's too bad we eventually have to put on pads."
