Senior All-American quarterback Casey Brockman got the offense rolling on the first play of the team period as he hit Walter Powell down the right side for a touchdown.  The duo combined for their second score on the series on a play that resembled the first.

The defense announced its presence with Corey Addison delivering a big hit on a short pass to the outside.  Safety Jarius Williams was able to make a stop at the line of scrimmage, while defensive tackle Jerome Davis came through the lone to make a stop in the backfield.

Both sides battled it out during the period, with each coming up with big plays.  Brockman threw his third touchdown of the practice to freshman Paul Rice, before Adrian Dinkins came through and forced a fumble on a sack and returned in for a touchdown.
