WR Brandon Powers had the days first touchdown on a 21-yard reception from Canfield. WR Darrell Catchings continued his strong showing catching two touchdown passes, one from Ryan Gunderson and the other from Breenan Sim.

- Riley says -

On goals for the scrimmage - “Our goal was to get the ones some play, at least twenty, and then get the twos more than that. We’ve got a 105 guys right now, so its more than in spring practice, so it’s a lot of guys first football in a long time, and a lot of practicing. So this is a chance for them to play a lot. I think it went pretty well.”

On deciding on a quarterback in the fall - "I'll tell you this - I will hopefully not do this ever again, go into fall camp like this. I don't think it's hurt our team. It was the right thing to do with these two guys because it was ill-defined, but I'm going to try and get this thing done soon."
