“We want to be able to establish the run game, take care of the football, play physical and fast, get lined up and execute the basic fundamentals. (We will also work on) the timing I have talked about in the pass game,” said Brian Wright, FAU’s Associate Head Coach, about his scrimmage expectations. “I want to see that improve in our offense.”
