PASSING
John Parker Wilson - 17 for 30, 309 yards, 2 Int., 2 TDs
Greg McElroy - 9 for 18, 146 yards, 0 TDs, 0 Int

Looks like McElroy is still the #2 under center, and his numbers from the first scrimmage of fall are far improved from his dreadful first scrimmage numbers in the spring. Wilson had two picks, but we don't know the circumstances surrounding them so let's not blast him for that yet.

RUSHING
Glen Coffee - 14 rush, 42 yards, 1 TD
Mark Ingram - 11 rush, 42 yards, 1 TD
Terry Grant - 9 rush, 32 yards, 0 TD.

Looks like Ingram got a good bit of work today, and from the raw numbers it looks promising. He equaled Coffee's production on three fewer carries, so maybe we've got another solid option for the tough between the tackles yardage.

RECEIVING
Glen Coffee - 6 rec. 79 yards, 0 TD
Mike McCoy - 3 rec., 119 yards, 1 TD
Mark Ingram - 3 rec., 31 yards, 0 TD
Colin Peek - 3 rec., 27 yards, 0 TD
Marquis Maze - 2 rec., 74 yards, 0 TD
Julio Jones - 2 rec. 59 yards, 1 TD.

Interesting that Coffee led in receptions, Ingram was third, and Grant is nowhere to be seen. Also interesting, McCoy was the only receiver with more than two receptions while two RBs and a TE (that has to sit out this year after transferring, no less) rounded out the top four in receptions. I do like that McCoy is a big yardage threat, though, topping 100 yards with only three catches (one a TD as well).

DEFENSIVE STATISTICS
Charlie Higgenbotham - 8 tackles
Rolando McClain - 5 tackles, 2 TFLs, 1 Int., 1 PBU
Don'ta Hightower - 5 tackles; 1 TFL
Ali Sharrief - 5 tackles, 1 PBU
Eryk Anders - 4 tackles, 2 TFLs
Rashad Johnson - 4 tackles, 1 Int., 2 PBUs.

Looks like Higgenbotham is making a push for playing time with a strong performance, and Anders, who came out of nowhere to be the kind of speedy rusher off the edge from the outside spot that we've been missing in the spring, had a pretty good day with 2 TFLs. Sharrief has stats while Woodall doesn't, so there's some intrigue at the other safety spot. Hightower's stats also look pretty good for a true freshman, so that's encouraging since I'd bet he gets a number of snaps from game one.
