Boston College: Sophomore Mike Marscovetra, who played sparingly last season, thrust himself into the quarterback competition by completing 13 of 16 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown. Linebacker Mark Herzlich, recovering from cancer treatments and surgery to insert a rod in his left leg, did not participate as he was held out of full contact drills this spring.
Georgia Tech: Tevin Washington secured his spot as the No. 2 quarterback by running for three scores and completing a 70-yard pass to receiver Stephen Hill for another. The scrimmage was called at halftime because of rain.
Maryland: Ralph Friedgen, coming of a 2-10 season, had his team play four 10-minute quarters. The Fridge liked what he saw. "If I was disappointed," he said, "we'd still be out there."
Virginia Tech: Redshirt freshman quarterback Logan Thomas showed command of the offense during a 12-play, 57-yard scoring drive to open the scrimmage. Michael Vick made an appearance, his first at Virginia Tech since being released from federal prison on dog-fighting convictions. "This is a place where I spent three years of my life, and I was able to build relationships with people and put myself in my position where I could take care of myself for the rest of my life and also further my education," he said. "It's a great group of people here, and I've still got a lot of love and respect for them." Announced attendance: 40,000.Big East
Cincinnati: Tony Pike is gone, but the Bearcats have a capable replacement in Zach Collaros, who completed 18 of 20 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns.
Rutgers: There was a time during Greg Schiano’s tenure as Scarlet Knight coach when a regular-season home game drew about half of what Saturday’s spring scrimmage did. A 2002 loss to Temple, for example, when the announced attendance was 10,225. But Schiano's 10th spring scrimmage drew a record 20,114.
