BOCA RATON, FL - Florida Atlantic University's football team held a late practice and hit the field in shorts and t-shirts.

The Owls' normal work week runs from Tuesday through Sunday with a heavier load of classes on Monday. With the team playing on Thursday this week, Monday presented an issue with class schedule. The FAU players reported after class, 7 p.m., and found shirt, shorts and cleats in their locker for what FAU Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger called a cerebral practice.

"We thought it would be good to dedicate the practice to the cerebral side," said Schnellenberger. "It has been a long camp and one that our legs have gotten weary. We are not going up there (UAB) with weary legs. So, we spent about an hour and 45 minutes with `chalk talk.' We got a lot out of it."

FAU football will return to the Tom Oxley practice fields, 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. All practices are free and open to the public.

Season tickets as well as single-game tickets are on sale and can be purchased on line or by calling 1-866-FAU-OWLS.

Worthy of Note:
Tuesday, Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger will join Ken LaVicka of ESPN760 AM for the first FAU SportsPage Coach's Show of the 2010 season. The show will originate at Hooter's of Boca Raton. Wear your FAU gear for drink and food specials.
