UC quarterback Zach Collaros was back on the field at practice Friday for the first time since breaking his ankle November 12th in a game against West Virginia.
Collaros was able to run and do some drills. He said earlier this week he's optimistic he'll be able to play in the Bearcats bowl game.
UC's next scheduled practice is Monday.
UC plays Vanderbilt in the Liberty Bowl on December 31st in Memphis. The Cats are set to arrive in Tennessee on December 26th.
