Eugene, OR -- Oregon will hold its first intersquad scrimmage of the fall at practice on Saturday.

It's a chance for players to show coaches their progression in a game-like setting. 

"We got to get eleven guys to think they can make every play," linebackers coach Ken Wilson said. "That's what we want to see in our scrimmages and stuff. They're not going to be perfect but we want them running to the ball and making plays. You can cover up a lot of issues on your defense if there's eleven guys flying to the football."

As far as who gets the majority of the reps, Wilson says it'll be situational.

It's the first game action for the Ducks since the spring. While the coaches don't expect the scrimmage to be perfect, there are some things they are looking for, specifically on the defensive side.

"Our effort and finish. That's the biggest things that we're looking forward to and see what' we've done to this point," defenisve line coach Joe Salave'a says. "That's the biggest thing. Other than that, we'll reassess and evaluate. Just looking for our tenacity after the ball."

The Ducks have a few more weeks of fall camp before opening the season against Auburn on August 31 in Arlington, Texas.
