Defense controls line in UTC scrimmage

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga offensive line was a work in progress heading into Friday's scrimmage at Finley Stadium. And the group's youth and inexperience showed at times against a formidable-looking defense.

UTC managed only two touchdowns in the 108-play scrimmage, which included a lot of snaps for players up and down the depth chart. The defense made two interceptions and forced the offense to settle for six Nick Pollard field goals.

"I came in thinking the defense would be ahead," coach Russ Huesman said.

The Mocs have two returning starters in the offensive line: right tackle Adam Miller and left guard Austin Wilson.
