The first five days of fall camp practice are an NCAA mandated "acclimation period." The acclimation period was put into effect by the NCAA in 2004 with the intent to lessen injuries and heat-related illnesses. The period is free of multi-practice days that were common in college football prior to the recent legislation.

The Beavs will also participate in several popular and entertaining "team building" activities, including rock/paper/scissors, sumo wrestling, bowling, pool and swimming competitions. Several guest speakers will also visit campus during the month.

Practices are open to the public and generally are held at the Tommy Prothro Football Complex between the Sports Performance Center and the Truax Indoor Center. The second practice of a double-day is located in Reser Stadium.

The Beavers are projected to be a Top 25 ranked team when the season opens Sept. 4 vs. TCU. OSU enters the 2010 campaign aiming for their fifth consecutive bowl game and 10th in the last 12 years.

For the 2010 campaign, Beaver Nation has already purchased a school record 26,700 season tickets as of July 21.

The 2010 team features Heisman Trophy candidate running back Jacquizz Rodgers, All-America, Lombardi, Nagurski, Outland and Lott Trophy candidate defensive tackle Stephen Paea, Biletnikoff Award candidate wide receiver James Rodgers and Rimington Award candidate center Alex Linnenkohl.

Tenth-year head coach Mike Riley also has the opportunity in 2010 to become the school's all-time winningest football coach this season.
