Aug. 20, 2012

FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State football team practiced in full pads for two-and-a-half hours on Monday morning for the 20th practice of fall camp.

The Bulldogs ended the session with an eight-minute scrimmage, putting the first teams in the situation where they had to come back from a 10-point deficit.

On Tuesday, Fresno State will hold its third live scrimmage of fall camp that will be closed to the public and the media. The scrimmage marks the end of fall camp, as classes start on Wednesday and the team goes into game mode after that for the season opener on Sept. 1 at home against Weber State.

The Bulldogs will be off from practice on Wednesday, but practice on Thursday and Friday in the afternoon.

Below are videos of interviews with head coach Tim DeRuyter and assistant coach Tim McDonald...
