Quarterback CJ Bennett prepares to take a snap in the light rain at the Jaguar Practice Facility in the opening week of preseason camp.

As the news that the South Alabama season opening game against Texas-San Antonio had been postponed until Saturday at 1pm, the football team took the opportunity to squeeze in a practice between the rain squalls.

“When we got up this morning and realized we were going to play on Saturday (instead of Thursday), I said if we don’t practice outside today, we probably won’t be able to practice outside another day this week,” head coach Joey Jones commented. “We wanted to get a good day in outside, and it was the best thing that we could do.”

The practices lasted about two hours on the field turf practice field and head coach Joey Jones said that the players responded well to the change in practice schedule. They were originally scheduled to practice around 3pm in Jag Gym. “Our game plan is solid and we feel good about it,” Jones said. “We have a couple more days to polish things. I think it was critical that we were able to get outside though. We don’t know what’s going to happen over the next two days. So we don’t have to go three days in a row without practicing outside. Hopefully we can find an hour or two in the next couple of days to get out again.”

ESPN3 will still broadcast the game on Saturday via their online streaming video service. Check your local internet provider to see if you have access.
