The Owls conducted their last full scrimmage prior to the season opener against Texas. They worked for a total of 10 series, most starting at the offense's 40-yard line. Five ended in touchdowns, including a pair by Charles Ross. Two ended in punts, one on downs, one on a fumble and one on an interception.
David Bailiff praise the Owls offensive line after the workout. "The offensive line played very well today. They did a great job opening some holes and performed well as a unit. The wide receivers also did a nice job getting down field and throwing some blocks, and that showed up in some of longer runs we had."
On the defensive side of things, Bailiff noted that the Owls continue to show improvement in their open-field tackling. "We're tackling better in space than at anyh time since I've been here."
"I really liked walking off the field today after what I saw in the scrimmage. Things went very well."
