Miami, Maryland scrimmage highlights

A few more scrimmage notes for you, as provided by each school's sports information department:


Two defensive scores highlighted the Terps' final scrimmage on Monday. Dexter McDougle had a 21-yard interception return and Trenton Hughes had a 22-yard fumble return. It was a 125-play scrimmage that featured possessions at the offense's 5- and 25-yard line, midfield and defense's 20-yard line.

Offensively, Da'Rel Scott had 10 carries for a scrimmage-high 73 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown where he burst through the line. Quarterback Jamarr Robinson was 9-of-14 for 102 yards, a touchdown and an interception, while Danny O'Brien was 19-of-34 for 179 yards.

"I thought Danny O'Brien did some good things today," coach Ralph Friedgen said, according to the team's practice report. "Jamarr [Robinson] threw an interception [that was returned] for a touchdown. I thought Jamarr looked pretty sharp in the 7-on-7 before the scrimmage, and he did some good things in the scrimmage. I have to look [at the tape] and see how that all turned out. We just didn't put the ball in the end zone a lot. That's the thing."
