Short-yardage scrimmage planned

8/19/2010

Coach Rick Neuheisel said the Bruins would run a short-yardage, full contact scrimmage at practice Thursday afternoon.

The Bruins will also practice goal-line offense and what Neuheisel called "come outs," which is trying to advance the ball from inside their own five-yard line.

"Putting it on the two and see if the offense can get it out of there and save what the percentages say is a great opportunity for the opponent," Neuheisel said. "And see if the defense can keep them pinned down there and create points for ourselves."

"That's a huge point of emphasis and we'll get a chance to do that tomorrow."
