Nevada's football team will practice the rest of the week at Stanford because of air-quality issues in the Reno area linked to the Dixie Fire in Northern California.
Wolf Pack coach Jay Norvell told ESPN that his team will practice three times and hold a scrimmage at Stanford before returning to campus this weekend. Air quality problems have prevented Nevada from scrimmaging during camp and limited what the team can do during practices. Nevada does not have an indoor practice facility and there are none in the area that the team could use effectively.
"It's literally affected every day of our practice for the last week and a half," Norvell said while riding a team bus toward Stanford on Tuesday. "When [the air quality index is] over 150, we have to take 12 players off the field, because they have asthma, and when it's 200, we can't do anything outside. We've only had about half of our practices outside, and even those were limited to the number of players who can be there. We just can't function anymore, we've got to make sure we get the remainder of our training camp where everybody participates in these full practices."
