Quinn Ewers and Arch Manning help the offense win the day

While some scrimmage reports note that the defense won the 11-on-11 portion of the spring scrimmage today, the consensus appears to be that the offense got the job done. If you include the red zone work, it sounds like the offense even dominated the defensive front at times on the ground and on quick developing passing plays.

Redshirt junior quarterback Quinn Ewers and redshirt freshman Arch Manning were both on point in this scrimmage in all phases. Ewers reportedly showed good command and was on point with his passes to his receivers in the 11-on-11 portion of the scrimmage.

Ewers and Manning both had at least one touchdown pass between the 11-on-11 work and the red zone portion of the scrimmage. Ewers had good connections during the scrimmage with senior tight end Gunnar Helm, sophomore wide receiver Johntay Cook II, and true freshman receiver Ryan Wingo.

The biggest highlight of the day for Manning was a nice 30-yard touchdown pass to former Alabama junior transfer tight end Amari Niblack.

One important part of the scrimmage was the fact that neither Manning nor Ewers had a single turnover. The only turnover the offense had in this scrimmage was reportedly a fumble by Baxter in 11-on-11 work.
