Asked about Kaufusi’s ability to step in and play a new position after missing most of camp, linebackers coach Kelly Poppinga said he has no worries whatsoever.

"Zero worry," Poppinga said. "That’s all I’m going to say - zero."


At the end of practice, the Cougars worked extensively on field goals and Mendenhall said senior Trevor Samson has a lead of two percentage points over sophomore Moose Bingham. He said Oregon State transfer Andrew Mikkelsen is the best at kickoffs, but Mikkelsen is out with a sore back. … Neither candidate to start at mike (middle) linebacker, Zac Stout or Harvey Langi, practiced Tuesday. … Mendenhall said the battle to be the punt returner is between UTEP transfer Jordan Leslie and Stanford transfer Keanu Nelson.
