- Oregonian - Scrimmage ragged as many starters get day off | Blog notes
Short recap - The younger players received a chance to flex their muscles as the Beavers held their final scrimmage of the fall.
"The starters have had a very good camp and we know exactly where they are," head coach Mike Riley said after being questioned about the regulars not playing. "We wanted to give the guys behind them ample opportunity today."
QB Ryan Gunderson, who has not received a lot repetitions of late, had the best day out of the quarterbacks completing 5 of 6 for 110 yards and a touchdown. WR Aaron Nichols caught the 70-yard scoring pass from Gunderson. QB Sean Canfield and Lyle Moevao each had a rough day going 7 for 26.
RB Patrick Fuller, Micah Strickland and Tony Carrasco each scored a touchdown. Carrasco led all rushers with 101 yards on 14 carries. Fuller added 29 yards on six carries while Clinton Polk chipped in 17 carries for 54 yards. PK Alexis Serna had a pair of 40-yard field goals.
DT Pernell Booth scooped up a fumble and rumbled 69-yards for six points and the days first touchdown.
"I think we're right on track," Riley said when asked about his team's readiness for the season. "There has been a lot of good competition. The next phase will be getting ready for the games and bringing the legs back. This team has worked very hard; it has been as good a group as I have been around in terms of working during camp."
The team will begin preparing for Eastern Washington later this week.
