“I’m going to take advantage of it,” Riley said Tuesday. “One thing about going to Hawaii in the middle of the year ... that was an 11-hour trip for us. When we came back Sunday morning — we didn’t come back right after the game — we left the hotel right there at 8 and got into Corvallis at about 11 o’clock. So, it’s an all-day deal.”
OSU got back on the field today.
“I gave players yesterday off and we started practicing today,” Riley said. “We’re going to get three good days in. I think because of that game and it’s location, I’m kind of glad we had a bye.”
