BATON ROUGE, LA: Coach Orgeron was very pleased with the team's second scrimmage of fall camp on Saturday in Tiger Stadium. "The team and the coaches did an excellent job." Orgeron said. "There was a lot of intensity, it was a great day. A lot of enthusiasm on both sides of the ball."

Josh Williams rushed for 66 yards on seven carries... Armoni Goodwin had 25 yards on six carries... Corey Kiner rushed five times for 15 yards. Both freshmen backs continue to look good... John Emery & Ty Davis-Price didn't practice.
Devonte Lee had five receptions for 85 yards... Malik Nabers had four catches for 79 yards... Deion Smith had three receptions for 67 yards... Brian Thomas and Jack Bech both had a good day.
On defense, Jay Ward had eight tackles... Zavier Carter had two sacks... Maason Smith had three sacks... Overall, a good day for the defense...
Cade York kicked a 54 yards field goal. He continues to show that he may be the best kicker in the country.
“We ended the day with the two-minute drill and I saw a lot of great things,” Orgeron said. “We still had some protections problems, but we improved as the day went on. I thought the offense had the better day today, they scored points and made some big plays.”
“We had a great scrimmage today and we got what we wanted to out of it. We wanted to have a final great scrimmage, which we did. Now we go into next week focused on game-planning for UCLA.”
