Scout-team scrimmage highlights: I thought this was the best the offense has been able to run the ball all year in these scrimmage periods. Guys like center Brigham Stoehr, guard Tanner Davies and tackle Braden Eggert have played a ton together this season, and their cohesiveness is showing. Jarret LaCoste had a couple nice runs, and J.J. Jones and Ty Griffin had long gains as well. … The defense had the edge in the passing game however. There were only a couple completions, and as many instances of the quarterbacks having to tuck the ball and scramble when they couldn’t find anyone open. The secondary included Glen Ihenacho at corner for some reps; he’s primarily been a safety this season. … For the front seven, Jimmie Swain had a tackle for loss and Isaac Ava broke up a pass on back-to-back plays midway through the period. Jonathan Kenion and Michael Manns teamed up for a tackle for loss a few reps later.

Gash them quickly with the straight-ahead run game, attack the edges with speed, and then go over top with the play-action pass to Devon Allen and Dwayne Stanford. It’s a game where the Quack Attack should strike early and often, and Marcus Mariota will be wearing a hat midway through the third quarter.
