Tough play has Cougs thinking about Harvey BYU running back Unga unleashed in scrimmage

PROVO — The way BYU's Harvey Unga is performing in scrimmages, it may be difficult to keep him off the field once the games begin.

Unga, a redshirt freshman running back, starred again Saturday as the Cougars held a 52-play scrimmage at LaVell Edwards Stadium. After rolling up plenty of yardage against the BYU defense, Unga scored on a 26-yard run down the sideline for the only touchdown of the day on the final play of the scrimmage.

"Every day's an opportunity to get better," Unga said. "The coaches told us to stick to what we learned in our meetings. (Running backs) coach (Lance) Reynolds knows what he's talking about. He's been around the game long enough to teach us what to do, and if you do it, you're going to have success."

Still, with less than two weeks to go before BYU opens the 2007 season at home against Arizona, coach Bronco Mendenhall held out several key starters on both sides of the ball as a precautionary measure. Considering the number of players who have been lost for the season during fall camp, no one could blame him.
