*Brandon Cox, Tre Smith and Carl Stewart all solid performances. Smith had a spectacular 58-yard touchdown play on a screen pass from Cox that changed the momentum over to the offensive side of the ball.
*Stewart was a bull running inside. He carried a significant portion of the defense on his back on one running play that set up his TD carry on the next play.
*The Tigers finished up under half of the lights at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The west side lights were not working due to the construction project.
*Patrick Trahan probably had his best scrimmage. He made the defensive play of the evening. He jumped high to deflect a Blake Field pass that linebacker Kevin Sears caught on the rebound and took the distance for a touchdown (79 yards).
*Brad Lester continues to have a strong spring running the football. The sophomore netted 48 yards on 10 carries in the scrimmage on Thursday and caught two passes for 17 yards.
*Jonathan Palmer worked at guard and tackle in the scrimmage. He started at right guard.
*First team guard Tim Duckworth rested his knee and did not see action.
*Antwoin Daniels started at right tackle. Leon Hart, who had been running number one at right tackle, played in a reserve role at right guard. Hart has gotten looks at guard, center and tackle as a Tiger.
*The defense did a good job of keeping freshman tailback Ben Tate in check. He carried the ball 10 times for 26 yards.
Cornerback Jerraud Powers intercepted a pass and looks for running room in Thursday's scrimmage.
*The Tigers threw a combined total of of 30 passes and there were 14 completions. No wideout had more than two catches. Walk-on Rodgeriqus Smith had two catches for 34 yards and Montez Billings had two catches for 18 yards.
*Tight end Gabe McKenzie had two catches for 23 yards.
*The offensive line did a much better job of protecting the QBs in the scrimmage than they did on Saturday. There were four sacks. Linebacker Patrick Trahan got two of them and recovered a fumble and deflected a pass that turned into a TD interception return by Kevin Sears.
*Defensive lineman Tez Doolittle was very active and was in on six tackles.
*Cornerback Walter McFadden, a redshirt freshman, was involved in six tackles, too.
*The field goal kicking was dead, solid perfect on Thursday. John Vaughn and walk-ons Matt Clark and Tyler DiPace made kicks of 44 yards, 42, 37 and 51 yards. Clark again showed the range to make a 60-yarder.
*Quarterback prospect Cameron Newton from Westlake High in Atlanta was at the stadium watching the scrimmage.
