Friday football scrimmage stats

The Tennessee football team on Friday morning had its first scrimmage of the spring.

Most players seemed to suggest the scrimmage was evenly matched between the offense and defense, though a couple of player on both sides of the ball seemed to suggest the defense may have performed a bit better.

All the expected names — those practicing in no-contact jerseys this spring — as well as junior-to-be nose tackle Maurice Couch (concussion) were held out, but Vols head coach Derek Dooley didn’t mention any new injuries sustained during the scrimmage.

The Vols were promptly sent home for Easter Break and will return to the practice field early next week.

One final scrimmage for this spring is scheduled for April 14, and the annual Orange and White game is set for April 21 in Neyland Stadium. Attendance and parking for the spring game will be free.

The staff at govols247 will provide scrimmage reaction throughout the day, but for now here are the unofficial statistics released by the UT sports information office.
