Dec. 28, 2005

The University of Notre Dame football team continued its preparations for the 2006 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl on Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2005, in Scottsdale, Ariz. The Irish attended the Fellowship of Christian Athletes annual breakfast at 7 a.m., then returned to the Scottsdale Plaza Resort for a series of team meetings before practice at 2:15 p.m.

The Irish have experienced two beautiful days of weather in Scottsdale. Sunny skies and temperatures in the 70’s have provided the Irish with ideal practice conditions. Tuesday’s workout was made up entirely of running and lifting weights to get the team back into work mode. For Wednesday’s practice, the Irish were back in full pads and focused on refining their previous game preparation for January 2nd.
