FORT COLLINS, Colo. — It’s a nice, cool day in Fort Collins, where the Warriors will conduct a toned-down practice at Hughes Stadium this evening.
The Warriors, who spent the night in Los Angles, are scheduled to arrive in Fort Collins at 4:30 this afternoon. The practice, which will be held after sunset, coincides with tomorrow’s game. Kickoff is at 5 p.m. MST.

If UH backup quarterback Beau Reilly plays tomorrow — or this season — partial credit goes to CSU coach Jim McElwain. Reilly signed with CSU in February 2011, then went on a two-year mission beginning that fall. After returning, he sought a release to transfer because the coaches who recruited him were no longer at CSU. McElwain, who is friends with UH coach Norm Chow, signed off on Reilly’s release, as well as a petition to allow Reilly to play this year without redshirting.
