UW defense gets better of offense in scrimmage

The Huskies are off the field after a two-hour scrimmage Saturday that was largely dominated by the defense.
There was just one offensive touchdown by the starting unit in five possessions, a 3-yard pass from Jake Locker to Cody Bruns in a two-minute drill that concluded the first half. Until then, the first-team defense had largely gotten the better of the first-team offense — until Tuesday’s scrimmage, this one featured the starters going against the starters, backups against backups, etc.
There was also a TD late in the game when Nick Montana hit DiAndre Campbell from eight yards out with when the backups were playing.
The No. 1 offfense, however, was hurt a little by injuries that sidelined WRs Jermaine Kearse (foot) and James Johnson (ankle) and LT Senio Kelemete (ankle). UW coach Steve Sarkisian says none of the inuries are serious.
And in good news on the injury front, there did not appear to be any injuries of note in today’s scrimmage.
Sarkisian agreed that the defense appeared the winner of the day, saying “they came out with the right energy and passion and were really focused early on.” He called the offense “kind of lackluster” early. However, as noted, two of the team’s leading WRs were not out there. And starting tailback Chris Polk was out there just enough to rush for 46 yards on seven carries — again showing no apparent rust — and then got out of there. It also doesn’t help that the QBs are off limits to contact, and hence Locker basically doesn’t run at all, which will obviously be one of the team’s most dangerous weapons when the BYU game rolls around Sept. 4.
Kevin Smith scored the only other TD on a 90-yard kickoff return.
There were also three field goals, two by walk-on backup Eric Guttorp (49, 33) and one by Erik Folk (47)
There were no turnovers.
Zach Fogerson sat out the scrimmage with a shoulder injury apparently reaggravated on Friday.
