"Coach (Todd) Sturdy does a good job of making sure that everyone's prepared," Lobbestael said. "I prepare every week like I'm going to play and I keep that mindset no matter what and it's helped me."
Lobbestael saw all the action running with the 1s on Tuesday and was threading the needle. Against the 1s on defense, Lobbestael saw success early on which included a beautifully thrown deep pass to WR Isiah Barton that set up a 30-yard FG by Andrew Furney in the team's two minute drill.
Against the scout team defense, the offense was running fluidly under Lobbestael's direction.
"It's definitely easier when you get the reps during the week because you've taken more snaps and obviously the more reps the better," Lobbestael said. "Coming in off the bench as the number two guy you don't have a lot of work during the week but I got a good amount of reps last week and I felt ready for the game.
"This week I'm going to feel more prepared because I'm getting more reps."
Tuel was on hand at practice and was showing a noticeable limp walking to and from different drills, and spent the majority of his time helping out QBs. But he still "ran" the offense during their sprint execution drill towards the end of practice.
With regard to injuries, WR Kristoff Williams and LB Mike Ledgerwood missed their second day of practice after suffering stingers Saturday against Oregon State. WR Henry Eaddy, who suffered a concussion against Stanford two weeks ago, returned to practice for the first time Tuesday and was sporting a yellow no-contact jersey.
Eaddy jumped right back in with the 2s at WR, and was also returning punts during special teams drills with WR Gino Simone and RB Rickey Galvin.
Oregon's high octane offense presents a number of challenges, including pace.
"I think today we did a good job," Kalafitoni Pole said. "The coaching staff is emphasizing getting lined up and getting to the ball quick because they (Oregon) have a really good no huddle offense. The tempo is one of their strengths and we did good today but we're going to have to get better tomorrow."
The defense was flying around for the second straight day and players were not shy about letting their voices be heard. Some of the emotion coming from yells and cheers from across the field is perhaps a result of the Oregon State loss.
"I can't say it's not (providing motivation)," Pole said. "I'm embarrased still. I don't know man, we're just looking forward to getting back on the field and showcasing that our team is still fighting."
