OXFORD, Ohio -- Miami's football team continued its preparations for the season opener at Ohio State in two weeks with a lengthy scrimmage Saturday morning at Yager Stadium. The RedHawks ran more than 150 offensive plays during the two-hour plus session.
In contrast to last week when the defense dominated, the Miami offense showed signs of life. With the focus on the running game, sophomore walk-on Robert Williams III gained 98 yards on the ground, including the longest play from scrimmage the entire day, a 59-yarder. Austin Boucher threw two touchdown passes, both from 25 yards out. The first went to David Frazier, while the second was hauled in by Willie Culpepper.
The practice covered various situations, starting with being pinned deep. Goal-line and two-minute offenses were also covered. A strong emphasis was also placed on the kicking game with Mason Krysinski nailing a 37-yarder to win a two-minute drill. Freshman Kaleb Patterson kicked a 42-yarder later in the workout.
