Some teams use the week to rest up and heal injuries that have developed over the course of the season.
Others use the time to work on their fundamentals. The Wildcats did both last week to get ready for Incarnate Word.
Ken Collums said, "The bye week was very nice. I've had numerous people aske me 'Hey what'd you do with your week off?' and it's like woah hold on it wasn't a week off, but it was a bye week and everybody got rested. Our players feel really good."
Blake Spears said, "The bye week was really nice. I can't really remember having a week like that since I've been at ACU. We didn't have to be as physical as usual. We got to go out in helmets, and we really worked on technique."
The Wildcats and the Cardinals play their rematch on Saturday at 2. That game is in San Antonio.
