NEW ORLEANS -- Focusing on short and long yardage situations, the Tulane defense continued its strong play Tuesday as the squad opened the second week of spring drills.
"It was a good practice," said head coach Chris Scelfo. "Both sides executed well at times. But it's obvious that the defense has a better grasp of the system at this point. The secondary broke on the ball very well today."
Much of today's practice, which lasted two hours, put the offense and defense in short and long yardage situations. Following those drills, quarterbacks and centers worked on exchanges.
Tulane continues spring practice through April 3. Another scrimmage is scheduled for
Saturday, March 25 at 10 a.m., leading up to the Green Wave Spring Game on Saturday,
