ASU Football bye week

JONESBORO, AR(KAIT) - After a few days off, The ASU football team returned to the practice field.  Arkansas State is going through it's first "off" or "bye" week of 2009.

And with no opponent to prep for this weekend, that means head coach Steve Roberts' team has three extra days to gear up for it's next game.

And that next game is actually a pretty "big one".

ASU is hosting Troy in it's Sun Belt Conference opener on September 26th at 3:30.

But going back to the open week, both coaches and players agree, having it two weeks into the season isn't all that bad, they say it's just something you got to deal with.
