After reporting on Sunday, the first week of practices (August 4-8) will take place on campus at Ernie Becker Sr. Football Fields at Bill "Wildcat" Morris Rebel Park and are open to the public in limited viewing areas.
On the initial day of a five-day acclimation schedule, the Rebel newcomers will hit the field first on Monday from approximately 10:10-11:40 a.m. The veterans will then take over from 6:00-8:05 p.m.
