The stretch run begins today with meetings and an afteroon workout.
Here’s new starting quarterback David Graves’ take: “A lot of people will see the downside of it. A lot of people will be all negative. (Defensive line coach) Tony Tuioti put it into perspective. He played on a team that lost 19 games in a row. He said if they were two games away from a bowl, that would be the world to them. Put in that perspective, our season is blessed in many ways. We have to move on and get these last two Ws.”

During this morning’s teleconference, head coach Greg McMackin said he was hopeful defensive tackle Kaniela Tuipulotu will be available for Saturday’s game against Tulane. McMackin said Tuipulotu will undergo an MRI on his shoulder today.
