With freshman quarterback Brett Hundley in control, the second-team offense struggled fundamentally, missing deep passes and having little flow.
Much of the issues stemmed from the exchange between Hundley and center Kody Innes, who stepped into second-team duty with Greg Capella up with the ones and starter Kai Maiava out nursing an ankle injury. Hundley, though, moved well in the pocket and had a few decent gains on the ground, finishing with seven carries for 34 yards and 6-of-13 passing for 62 yards and an interception.
“Brett doesn’t get fazed very often,” Neuheisel said. “I thought Brett had a good day. He did some really good things. Some things that are part of the offense and some things he did instinctively. I think we have a good player there.”
