Berkeley - The California football team held a situational practice on Tuesday, working on game-like scenarios from designated yard lines in Memorial Stadium. Cal also utilized simulated crowd noise in some of its drills.
"It was a lot of situational stuff, trying to get guys on and off the field," said head coach Jeff Tedford. "We were making sure we have substitution groups the way they need to be. We got some work done still with the tempo of practice; a couple of things were live. It was a lot of situations and we got some work done without really banging them too much."
In one particular situational drill, Kevin Riley found LaReylle Cunningham and Sean Young for touchdowns, while in short yardage situations, Kyle Reed hooked up with Cunningham on back-to-back scores.
Cal resumes practice tomorrow with a morning session. As a reminder, ALL PRACTICES are CLOSED to the public.
The Bears open the 2007 season on Saturday, Sept. 1, hosting Tennessee at Memorial Stadium in a 5 p.m. contest. Single-game tickets are available for all games except Tennessee, USC and Stanford. Season tickets are currently available by visiting www.CalBears.com or by calling 1-800-GO-BEARS.
