Eugene, OR -- Oregon football finished up its 12th fall practice on Thursday. 

Both offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo and defensive coordinator Andy Avalos stressed the importance of putting the team in situational drills. 

It's a point of emphasis ahead of the team's second fall scrimmage on Saturday.

"We're making sure out guys understand end-of-the-game situations, field position situations," Avalos said. "Just making sure that we do a great job with our diligence and make sure our guys understand that stuff."

Another area of importance for the offense is the chemistry at tight end.

Both Jacob Breeland and Cam McCormick were sidelined at practice once again. This allowed guys like Ryan Bay and Hunter Kampmoyer to get reps. Bay, a junior, and Kampmoyer, a senior, are upperclassmen who haven't seen much playing time. 

"With Breeland and Cam out, you're forced to use some other guys that may not have any reps," Arroyo said. "It's that chemistry between the whole group. You've got to try and find a way to see where it fits in with those guys. Kamp and Bay are two guys who have been around but haven't had the bulk of what we've done. Then you bring along the young guys like Patrick (Herbert) and Spencer (Webb) and see what they can do to help you and basically shrink the gap between the elder guys and younger guys."

Oregon will open its season against Auburn on August 31 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
