BOCA RATON, Fla. -
The Owls got over the hump Wednesday with yet another practice focusing on shoring up certain facets of the game while involving as many players as possible, with still over a week before the squad's next matchup.
Wednesday Comments from Head Coach Lane Kiffin
"I thought today was a really good practice. Guys have had great energy, two of our best practices, and I think we got better today. Hopefully our passing is getting better, it feels like it has (even though) it's been just two days. Guys have had great energy which is not always the case on bye weeks when guys are wanting to coast through. So it's been great."
