The juco transfer from East Mississippi threw for two touchdowns – one to Melvin Harris and one to Vincent Sanders. And Mackey didn't even get into the scrimmage until the seventh series as the fourth quarterback to see action, even after freshman Evan Ingram had gotten some snaps.
Nathan Stanley started and didn't move the offense. At that point Masoli came in for three series.
On the day Stanley was 3-for-5 for 45 yards. Masoli was 6-for-12 for 101 yards and a touchdown. Mackey was 5-for-11 for 38 yards and two touchdowns with one interception – by veteran Jonathan Cornell.
In the rushing department, Enrique Davis made the most of his carries with only five of them for a grand total of 57 yards and a touchdown. That's mainly because his touchdown rush alone was for 56 yards toward the stadium's south end zone.
Other rushing totals on the day were freshman freshman Jeff Scott with 20 yards on two carries, one of them a 5-yard touchdown run, Nicholas Parker with eight carries for 21 yards, Rodney Scott 12 yards on five carries, Devin Thomas three carries for 20 yards, Brandon Bolden three yards on five carries, Derrick Herman nothing on four carries, Jesse Grandy one carry for minus 4 yards, Korivc Neat two carries for a yard, Evan Ingram one for 10 yards, Witt Haggard one for minus five.
And then the three QBs vying for the spot:
Mackey for carries for eight yards, Masoli three carries for minus one, and Stanley one carry for five yards.
Receptions were spread among several receivers with three different ones catching touchdown passes – Ja-Mes Logan nine-yard reception from Masoli, Melvin Harris 13-yard reception from Mackey, and Vincent Sanders 15-yard reception from Mackey.
Melvin Harris – 3 for 56 yards and a touchdown
Vincent Sanders – 2 for 23 yards and a touchdown
Lionel Breaux – 1 for 31 yards
Brandon Bolden – 1 for 2 yards
Martez Eastland – 1 for 44 yards
Korvic Neat – 1 for 12 yards
Derrick Herman – 1 for 5 yards
Ja-Mes Logan – 2 for 14 yards and a touchdown
Markeith Summers – 1 for 36 yards
Jesse Grandy – 1 for 4 yards
In the place-kicking department, Bryson Rose was the clear leader making 5 of 6. His only miss hit the crossbar from 46 yards out.
In the punting department, Tyler Campbell boomed punts of 55, 55, 54, 50, and 40 yards.
Clarence Jackson and Dele Juniad with four tackles each; Cameron Whigham, Jason Jones, Damien Jackson, Julian Whitehead, and Frank Crawford with three apiece.
