Kentucky football coach Rich Brooks liked what he saw from his team during their first scrimmage of fall camp Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium.
Brooks said the team's performance was encouraging, especially from an offensive standpoint.
"The first-string defense and the first-string offense actually executed pretty well, maybe ahead of my expectations," Brooks said. "The very good thing is that we're throwing and catching and actually running the ball halfway decent."
Mike Hartline and the Cats' first-team offense scored on its first two possessions. Brooks said one drive featured 15 to 16 plays and the other scored in eight or nine plays.
Brooks said receivers Randall Cobb and Chris Matthews turned in a solid performance and was encouraged.
"It was pretty good by everybody," he said. "I don't think I saw a (dropped pass). That's a shock. Last year, I saw a whole bunch of them."
