Wednesday afternoon, in a scrimmage closed to the public, the Hokies got
strong performances from Tyrod Taylor, several wide receivers, running backs
David Wilson and Josh Oglesby, and the number one defense. The scrimmage pitted
the #1 offense against the #2 and #3 defenses, and the #1 defense against the #2
and #3 offenses.

Here are the stats, per hokiesports.com
and Kyle Tucker of the Virginian-Pilot (where necessary). The stats are
not complete:

Tyrod Taylor finished the scrimmage by running the two-minute offense and
throwing for a TD pass to Danny Coale. Taylor’s numbers were posted against the
#2 defense, as were the rushing totals by Wilson and Oglesby, who averaged 5
yards a carry.

The #1 defense forced three fumbles and held the offensive backups to two
first downs.

Matt Waldron finished the preseason 10-for-10 on field goals and has a
stranglehold on the starting placekicking job.

The Hokies have been working on the Alabama game plan (that’s why the
scrimmage was closed), and the Tech coaching staff will use film from this
scrimmage to make their final determinations on their depth chart, who will play
against Alabama, and how they’ll be used.
