WEST HARRISON, Ind. – Business picked up under the lights Sunday as the University of Cincinnati football team donned full pads and practiced under the lights at the Higher Ground Conference & Retreat Center in West Harrison, Ind.

UC held its C-Tough periods for the first time this season, working through one-on-one and team hitting situations. The Bearcats also held some situational scrimmage settings working on down and distance and in the red zone.

One new feature at practice through camp has been the addition of a sound cart, a modified gator with a large speaker box on the back. Through the mobile speaker system, which is often found behind the quarterbacks, can play sound effects, the practice public address system as well and warm up music and Head Coach Butch Jones’ personal playlist. The sound effects include something that sounds like a video game, a vacuum, various sirens and warning signals and a constant loop of a crying baby.

Check out the Bearcats TV feature on the cart with Director of New Media and Broadcasting Tom Gelehrter and Assistant Football Equipment Manager Andy Frigge by clicking HERE.

The Bearcats will be off Monday, with meetings and a weightlifting/conditioning session scheduled. UC returns to the practice field Tuesday for its first two-a-day session.
