The Cards held a closed scrimmage on Saturday morning at their practice facility, and as might be expected, the word is that the first team offenses and defenses had their way with the second team units.
Though no stats were made available, Charlie Strong noted afterward that Teddy Bridgewater hooked up with DeVante Parker for three touchdowns, and that overall he was very pleased with the all-around effort. Calvin Pryor, James Quick, Will Gardner and Dominique Brown were also singled out for their performances.
For more on the scrimmage, check out Jody Demling's recap as well as the video below:
GoCards.com talks a little bit more about Saturday's scrimmage and the competition amongst the "five-headed monster" at running back.
A quick reminder that Sunday's fan day activities will begin with an open practice at 2:45 p.m.
The other major story of the weekend so far took place last night at Trinity, where U of L QB commit Reggie Bonnafon put on a show in the Shamrock's scrimmage against Highlands. The senior, who played wide receiver last season while waiting for now-FIU QB Travis Wright to pass on the reigns, completed 22-of-29 passes for 379 yards and four touchdowns.
The number of people who believe Reggie has the best chance to be "the guy" after Teddy is growing, but we'll know more after he makes his first varsity start next Friday against Nashville Ensworth. Cardinal fans will be able to watch that game on ESPNU.

More on today's scrimmage from WDRB, which says DeVante Parker "dominated" and Domique Brown was "phenomenal."
Former U of L running back Jeremy Wright is the latest roster addition for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Most believe his best chance to make the team is through his play in the return game.
