VIDEO: Petrino, Bonnafon, Scott talk progress

University of Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino, along with quarterback Reggie Bonnafon and running back L.J. Scott visited with the media following a Saturday morning scrimmage

The University of Louisville football team held a two-hour practice, wit a lengthy and physical scrimmage taking the majority of the session.

"First of all, I thought we had a great week," said head coach Bobby Petrino. "We did a lot this week in our preparation for the Auburn game and the guys did a good job of that."

The trio of quarterbacks - Reggie Bonnafon, Kyle Bolin and Tyler Ferguson - continue to split reps, but Bonnafon had possibly his best outing of the spring. The sophomore from Louisville Trinity completed about 63 percent of his pass attempts, while leading the first team offense to four scores. He accounted for nearly 300 yards and had a pair of touchdown throws, plus a 2-yard rush for a score. Bonnafon also racked up over 100 yards rushing.

"It's something where we're not in a hurry to make a decision," Petrino explained afterward. "If it just happens and they separate themselves that's fine, but they all need to get better. They all need reps in practice and need reps with the ones."

Reggie Bonnafon discusses team and personal progess during spring:

The more physical practice also saw the running backs have more of an opportunity to excel. Sophomore back L.J. Scott, who played in all 13 games last fall, is again fully healthy and rushed for just over 100 yards on Saturday morning.

"I thought our running backs had a pretty good day," Petrino said. "That was one of the things that I wanted to see going in was how our running backs would do. It was good to see L.J. out there at full speed. Brandon is a little bit rusty as far as his cuts, but he's certainly quick and tough and does things that we ask him to do."

Cardinal Authority chats with L.J. Scott:

The Cardinals begin their final week of spring practice on Tuesday, with the annual Red-White Spring Game scheduled for Friday evening at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.
