Coach Larry Porter took his team through their second major scrimmage of the spring at the Murphy Athletic Complex Saturday afternoon. The squad has three practices remaining this spring, with the final one next Saturday for the Blue-Gray Game at the Liberty Bowl.

The Tiger offense rolled through over 110 plays, with 63 of those passing plays. Andy Summerlin completed 20 of 36 pass attempts for about 225 yards and a touchdown, while Will Gilchrist completed 17 of 27 pass attempts for 252 yards and two touchdowns. Nine different receivers had receptions today with redshirt freshmen Reggie Travis (2-100-1) and Kevin Wright (5-103-1) both going for over the century mark. Travis rolled off a 94-yard touchdown, and Wright hauled in a 60-yard TD.

Also posting 50-plus yards were Curtis Johnson (6-54), Marcus Rucker (5-66), Cam Baker (4-59) and Tannar Rehrer (9-85). Eight of Rehrer's catches were during the final two periods of two-minute.

Two minute and goal line is where the defense dominated today. The defense won both sets of two minute, with a big stop coming from Lavaris Edwards, who had a pick in the endzone. Edwards also had several pass breakups in the scrimmage. The second two-minute series was halted by a sack by Martin Ifedi. On the goal line series, Zach Gholson recovered a fumble and then posted a TFL. Fred Harvey had also posted a TFL on that series. The defense also stifled the offense on redzone as the defensive line had multiple sacks on those five series. Johnnie Farms had a pair of sacks and Mitch Huelsing had a pass breakup.
