Business-like execution by the first team offense is the highlight of the first quarter. Mariota looks dazzling, 13/14 to start the game to a variety of targets. Good to see successful throws to Josh Huff, Keanon Lowe, Colt Lyerla. Great touch on the ball.
Defense is swarming, and special teams stuff three kickoffs inside the 20 despite the new kickoff rule. Alonso starts the game with two tackles for loss.
Aplin completing nearly all of his passes but nearly all of them are sideways. Cross the 50 for the first time at the 12 second mark.
