The Nevada football team is headed to the Bay Area.
The Wolf Pack, which has been suffering through poor air quality in the region due to the Dixie Fire, is relocating to Stanford on Tuesday for the remainder of this week's fall camp practices. The current schedule would have Nevada returning to Reno on Saturday night with practices returning to campus Monday, Aug. 23, which is the first day of classes at UNR.
All of Nevada's practices at Stanford will be closed to fans and the media.
The Wolf Pack moved its Monday morning practice indoors to a walkthrough. It was the third time since fall camp started Aug. 6 that Nevada has had to move its practice to the basketball courts on campus because of high AQI figures. The Wolf Pack has had to make daily changes to its fall camp practice schedule due to the air quality.
"We have an open mindset," Norvell said. "There are certain things we can't control. We try our best, but the smoke is one of them and if we get to a certain level, we have to modify. And if it gets to a certain level, we have to shut it down. We're trying to be smart."
Nevada football is the second Wolf Pack program to move its training camp to California. The Wolf Pack women's soccer team spent the last week at UC Davis outside Sacramento. Nevada football is scheduled to open the season Sept. 4 at Cal.
