"I just get thrilled when I see my guys have success and try new things and when it works, I get chills and I get emotional," Cahoon said. "That's really fun and I've had plenty of those moments the first couple of days."

DAY 3: For the Cougars' first morning practice of fall camp, coach Bronco Mendenhall changed the routine and had his team practice in the indoor practice facility. It was also their first practice in shoulder pads.

STANDOUTS: Quarterback Jake Heaps connected with wide receiver Ross Apo on a 70-yard touchdown pass. Defensive lineman Hebron Fangupo picked off Riley Nelson and rumbled for a TD, though the play had already been whistled dead. Placekicker Justin Sorensen nailed a 52-yard field goal and just missed on a pair of 67-yard attempts.

INJURIES: Several players, like running back Joshua Quezada (ankle), linebacker Brandon Ogletree (groin) are dinged up, but the most concerning is tight end Kaneakua Friel's hamstring.

NEXT UP: The Cougars will hold another morning practice session Wednesday.
