Hill, who completed 9 of 15 passes for 98 yards and the TD, gave the offense a six on a scale of 1-10 for its level of sharpness.

"We have to clean up some of the three-and-outs and some of the little miscues on assignments and stuff," he said.

Stewart had a slightly more efficient day, completing 12 of 17 passes for 116 yards.

Defensively, linebacker Jherremya Leuta-Douyere led the way with six tackles, and defensive coordinator Nick Howell said that cornerbacks Michael Davis and Jordan Preator also played well.

"We didn’t stop the run nearly well enough," Howell said. "That’s the biggest takeaway that I took from it."
