The football team stayed out of the rain Wednesday, hitting the gym instead of the field. With this weekend's Border War a constant thought in mind, the members of the team were a little disappointed they couldn't get on the field to prepare as they had wanted.
"We've got the mental part down," said junior Robert Herbert. "I wanted to go out on the field, but we can't get anyone hurt."
The offense sought shelter in Moby while the defense worked out in the Rec Center. After only an hour of physical drills, the teams retreated to the locker rooms and then their meeting rooms in McGraw.
If weather permits, the team will make up for lost time today with an extra long practice.
The Border War is one of the most hyped games of the season for the Rams.
Last year, the Wyoming Cowboys came to Hughes as heavy favorites and lost the Bronze Boot in front of CSU fans.
This year the game will return to Hughes with the two teams coming in much more evenly matched.
Student tickets for the game sold out by 3 p.m. Tuesday, which was the fastest ever in CSU history.
Overall, only 1,000 tickets remain for the game, which starts at 1 p.m. Saturday.
