Wednesday might have been the most difficult practice that junior Brittany Howard has endured throughout top-ranked Stanford's undefeated run.

It wasn't the pressures of remaining unbeaten or the upcoming weekend series in Oregon against both Oregon and Oregon State that weighed on Howard's back, but rather an inflatable crocodile.

The nation's top-ranked volleyball team held it's annual Halloween practice on Wednesday and Howard came dressed as a crocodile wrangler.
