Counting Down to the 2011 Shrine Bowl

Fans are counting down the days until football season starts. 22 to go before the Sioux open fall camp. But football is already at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks.

Fans are counting down the days until football season starts. 22 to go before the Sioux open fall camp. But football is already at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks.

Both the nine and eleven man east teams for this year's Shrine Bowl held practice there Tuesday.

The first order of business was easy: get used to the bounce of the turf. The second task was a little more difficult: the players had to get used to their new teammates. But after a few days of practice, the team feels like they can already take that off of the list, too.

Now, the teams have to learn their new playbooks, but they're on the clock. Both games are Saturday at the Alerus Center.
