Southern first scrimmage of fall
BATON ROUGE - The Southern Jaguars battled the daunting heat in their first scrimmage of the fall.
While the Jags haven't named their starting quarterback, there were some new wrinkles in the offense.
Returning running back Lenard Tillery(two touchdowns) did a good job fending off RB transfers from Pittsburgh, Southern Mississippi, and Louisiana Tech.
The defense set the tone for most of practice, taking advantage of ball handling issues on the offensive side of the ball.
