Due to the poor air quality across Northern Nevada, the Nevada Wolf Pack football team will be relocating to Stanford University to finish its fall camp, Chris Murray of Nevada Sports Net first reported on Monday.
Murray cited that the location displacement will last until Saturday, two days prior to the fall semester begins. None of the fall practices will be open to the fans or media.
“The Wolf Pack moved its Monday morning practice indoors to a walkthrough. It was the third time since fall camp started Aug. 6 that Nevada has had to move its practice to the basketball courts on campus because of high AQI figures. The Wolf Pack has had to make daily changes to its fall camp practice schedule due to the air quality,” Murray wrote.
Nevada’s first game will be on the road against California on Sept. 4, barring any change. It will play two of its three contests away from home against Power-5 foes. The Wolf Pack are coming off a 7-2 season, traveling out of the Silver State just twice due to multiple COVID-19 conflicts.

Wolf Pack football to practice in Stanford, CA starting tomorrow through Saturday.
Air quality issues are to blame.
Practices back in town are expected to resume next Monday.
The Silver and Blue needs an indoor practice facility in the worst way.
