Practice notes: Defense prepares for Cougar air assault

Stanford’s practice on Wednesday night ended with the temperature under 60 degrees, and most coaches were wearing jackets or sweatshirts. On Saturday against Washington State in Pullman, the temperature will be about half that, as the high is forecasted to be 36 degrees with some snow possible. Cardinal coaches and players addressed the added degree of difficulty and what they must do to adjust to the weather after practice.
