The Boise State Bronco football team will take to the field for the first time tomorrow for the team's first fall practice.

The players will not be in full pads but will work through drills, and it will be the first time since spring ball that coaches and players will be on the same field together.

The beginning of fall camp is the time for the players to learn the Bronco way and get back into football shape.

The player meetings will be brief with the coaches prior to practice as Coach Harsin wants his squad to get back to the basics and learn the game football.

"This is our first opportunity to prepare and practice.  It’s what we are looking forward to it’s a whole lot of fun.  You learn a lot about guys in this period each and every year," said, Head Coach Bryan Harsin.

It’s worth noting Coach Harsin doesn't expect any surprises heading into tomorrow’s practice.  All of the Boise State football players are on campus and have already begun speaking with their position coaches and started looking at the playbooks.

A move that will change coach Harsin's practice plan this fall is college teams can no longer practice full contact more than once a day.

Typically teams will do one practice in the morning, break for meetings and lunch, and then practice again in the late afternoon.

Coach Harsin wishes he could still do multiple practices in a day to help bring the younger players along.

"The ones that have done it really love it and they say they don't mind it.  Once you got thru it, after a two a day practice, the guys go into the locker room and there is a celebration that they just accomplished something there just a different comradery.  Is it necessary though no,"  said, Harsin.
