WAC spring football...catch the fever (or don't)

With nearly every WAC team in action, we thought it would be fun to take a look around to see what our conference rivals are up to. Enjoy.


The Warriors begin their WAC championship defense the only way they know how: getting up at the crack of dawn.

Most practices run from 7-9 a.m. and are open to the public.
Getting up early? Hah! Nothing a 64 oz. Coke can't fix!

Utah State

The Aggies are halfway through their spring practices, and head coach Brent Guy is predictably optimistic.
"The main thing was that it was much more physical than in years past because of our numbers; we have a lot more guys to get in there and we were able to get quite a few live snaps in," said Guy.

New Mexico State

NMSU will become the final WAC team to open spring practice, when they kick things off later today. The last shall be first? We doubt it.

In addition to oily team-building, the Vandals have lots of work to on the football field during spring practice.
"That’s the one thing we really need to work on," Enderle said, "finishing our drives and getting in the end zone."
"Also, pretty much every other aspect of football," he continued.

Fresno State

When Kansas State pulled out of the Bulldogs' 2008 schedule, Fresno replaced the Wildcats with Big East power Rutgers. The Fresno-Rutgers season opener will take place on Labor Day, and the Scarlet Knights will return in 2012 to take on the Bulldogs in Fresno.

Gene Bleymaier is hard at work replacing Idaho State with ITT Tech.

Something is going on at Louisiana Tech's spring practice, but we're not sure what exactly that is.
Following Saturday's first scrimmage of spring workouts, the Bulldogs focus was on improving and building a brand of Louisiana Tech football Monday. Head coach Derek Dooley told his players when each of them earns respect from the opponent the team will have an identity as a strong football program.
