Highlights: The offense started well today after finishing the scrimmage strong. Neither the ones nor twos got into the end zone in the tempo period to open practice, but both moved the ball as well as they have so far this month – a welcome quick start after they started slow Tuesday. Ifo Ekpre-Olomu broke up a pass in the end zone with the ones, after a Royce Freeman run and Dwayne Stanford reception got Marcus Mariota and company into the red zone. Jeff Lockie threw a really nice deep ball to Darren Carrington that just missed the mark for the twos; again, though neither unit “scored,” it seems like the offense is starting to find its rhythm.
