With the weekend off, Colorado State’s football team will resume preparation for the Boise State game on Monday, a normal rest day for the team.
Colorado State head coach Steve Fairchild said it will benefit the team in two ways, getting them extra work and more rest.
“We will practice Monday. Monday will be as big a practice as we have next week,” Fairchild said. “It does help a lot. Twofold, you get more reps. Secondly, you can really back off Wednesday and Thursday; you can go in a little fresher. You can get more practice and be fresher.”
As he left Friday morning’s practice, he said the game plan was about two-thirds installed, with specialty packages for red zone and third down still to come, situations he said he would work on over the weekend.
