Via azcentralsports.com, Arizona State A.D. Ray Anderson said Friday that the league will be playing games mostly on Saturdays, with some Sundays. Arizona home games will be played at Sun Devil Stadium Tyquan Lewis Jersey , which hosted the NFL’s Cardinals from 1988 through 2005.

“I don’t want to make it bigger than it is,” Brockers said, via ESPN.com. “We’ve brought in tremendous talents Youth Green Bay Packers Jerseys , but at the same time, we still have to put the work in. We can’t fall into the hype. We just have to put our heads down and continue to grind.”
