PROVO — With the season-opener kicking off a week from Saturday against Portland State, BYU is winding down fall camp.

The Cougars will hold an open practice session Thursday at 10 a.m. at LaVell Edwards Stadium. The public is invited and admission is free.

Meanwhile, coach Kalani Sitake is evaluating his position groups and trying to get the depth chart set.

“There are some spots up for grabs," he said. "The goal is to get the best 11 to take the first snap of the game. That’s what we’re trying to get to.”

After almost three weeks of practices, running back Squally Canada acknowledged there’s still work to be done but he is eager to play in a real game.

“There’s stuff we need to improve on as an offense,” he said, “but I’m eager to hit somebody else because our defense knows our plays.”
