WACO, Texas - Baylor held its penultimate spring football practice Tuesday, a 140-minute session in full pads at the Highers Complex practice fields on campus.
The Bears conclude spring drills Thursday, April 2, with a controlled scrimmage presented by Time Warner Cable at the Highers Complex fields located behind the Simpson Center on University Parks Drive.
"What we've got to do is come out here and be as good as we can be each day individually," said head coach Art Briles. "I'm not looking at it trying to think, `Well I wonder how we're looking as a team or as a unit or as a football program'. What I'm looking at is how these guys are improving individually on a daily basis; which is collectively going to help us be a better team at the end."
Gates to the Highers Athletics Complex practice fields open at 3 p.m., with the scrimmage set to begin at 4 p.m. Fans are encouraged to park at the Ferrell Center parking lots and ride the complimentary shuttles to the Highers Athletics Complex. The shuttles will run between the Ferrell Center parking lots and the Highers Athletics Complex from 3-7 p.m.
