After five emotionally grueling games, the Clemson football team was able to relax a little on Wednesday. Head coach Tommy Bowden held a scout team scrimmage with hopes of sparking his players. It was scout team offense versus scout defense with the guys on the two-deep cheering them on.

The scrimmage started with Jamarcus "Jumbo" Grant and Jermaine "Mad Dawg" Martin being named offensive and defensive captains. The format of the scrimmage was a best two out of three. The defense needed two stops and the offense needed two scores to win. The scrimmage started with a screen pass to walk-on receiver Chris Wade from Tribble Reese that went for nine yards. The offense scored on the first possession on a two-yard run from Paul Macko.

The defense would then take control. Elsmore Gabriel had a key sack to set the offense back and "Mad Dawg" Martin had a big hit to stop the offense. The last highlight of the scrimmage came on a quarterback draw. Tribble Reese ran along the left side on third and fourteen. Reese picked up the first down after big block from Duncan McLaurin. McLaurin was mauled by the starters following his block.

Outside of the scout team offense, the team was all smiles following the scrimmage. The team was excited and all smiles. It was good change of pace, considering the first five games.
