The Red Wolves held five practices prior to breaking for Christmas. Yesterday's practice was the first for A-State since Dec. 20, and the team was excited to be back on the field according to interim head coach John Thompson.
"Everyone is back with a great attitude and very hungry to go and compete for a win," Thompson said. "There are obviously some areas where we have to get a lot more reps, but (yesterday's practice) was really pretty good."
A-State took the field in full pads today at 3:15 p.m., working out in cold and windy weather conditions. With the GoDaddy Bowl seven days away, the Red Wolves are in a game-week practice mode.
"We got a lot accomplished today, and we probably have about 15-20 percent more gameplan to install," said Thompson. "We've got it ready, but have been phasing it in and expect to have it all in place after tomorrow."
A-State will practice again Monday and Tuesday in Jonesboro at 11:15 a.m. and depart for its third consecutive trip to the GoDaddy Bowl on Wednesday at noon.
The Red Wolves will play Mid-American Conference member Ball State in the GoDaddy Bowl, set for an 8 p.m. kickoff on Jan. 5. Bowl tickets are only $45 per ticket when purchased through the A-State?Ticket Office.
