ORLANDO - Head coach George O'Leary's UCF football squad participated in an hour-long segmented scrimmage on Saturday afternoon on campus. Conference USA officials worked the scrimmage.
O'Leary had the first team offense and first team defense work against the Golden Knights' second team units.
"I thought there was consistency on both sides (of the ball)," said O'Leary. "I thought the offense had the edge today in some situations. I think basically, when you have the ones and twos going against each other, the ones should win."
Sophomore tailback Kevin Smith had an efficient day as he recorded several long runs. Senior Steven Moffett and junior Kyle Israel had success at quarterback running the first and second team offenses, respectively.
"I thought we threw the ball better today," said O'Leary. "I think we need to continue to work on our running game and our passing game and things will be fine there. Overall I think anytime you come out of a scrimmage with no injuries, and there was a lot of contact, that is a good day."
UCF concludes its preseason camp on Sunday with a practice at 3:30 p.m.
