NEW: Follow on facebook -

Auburn and Georgia held the first two scrimmages of fall camp yesterday, and both were closed to the media. Here are some quick hitters from each:

Auburn

  • Held 107-play scrimmage
  • Four QBs were in regular contact jerseys, but they threw three INTs
  • QBs Nick Marshall and Kiehl Frazier have had the two best camps so far
  • Running game was the best aspect of the offense, and three backs Tre Mason, Cameron Artis-Payne and Corey Grant are playing well
  • LB Jake Holland picked off a pass and returned it 70-plus yards
  • CB Chris Davis also picked off a pass
  • The cornerbacks are out performing everyone on defense led by Davis and Jonathon Mincy
  • Freshman DE Carl Lawson stood out to RB Corey Grant for ‘blowing up plays’

Gus Malzahn, via AL: “Hopefully we will learn some information where we can start, at least, trying to narrow it down. I’m not going to say we’re going to for sure, but that was our goal for this scrimmage, to try to get more information moving forward.”

Georgia

  • Mark Richt said the guys looked tired, and he said he didn’t see much juice
  • Richt acknowledged the defense ‘won the day’, but he added there was still an ‘awful lot of yardage’
  • QB Aaron Murray finished 13 of 18 for 198 yards, one touchdown and three INTs
  • QBs Brice Ramsey threw two INTs and Christian LeMay threw one
  • QB Hutson Mason finished 12 of 18 for 197 yards and a touchdown
  • RBs Keith Marshall finished with two carries for 80 yards, including a 75-yard score, while Todd Gurley finished with 12 carries for 59 yards

WR Justin Scott-Wesley, via Athens Banner-Herald: “Nobody was pleased. None of the coaches. Nobody was pleased. Even Coach Richt, he got fired up by the lack of passion that the offense had. … He had some words.”
