�The defense was flying around and they got after it,� UTEP coach Sean Kugler said.���They put a lot of pressure on the quarterback.��Parsee had a good day.��Devin Cockrell was flying all over the field.��He had an interception and a couple of tackles for losses.��He was a physical presence out there.��He sparks the defense.�

Stephen Forester, Adrian Hynson and Lawrence Montegut added one sack apiece as the Miner stop troops turned in a spirited performance in a rare mid-week scrimmage.

�We just wanted to mix it up, change it up a little bit and get after them and set a good tempo right here, and probably wanted to space it out before we had our spring game,� Kugler said.

The Miner spring game will be held on Friday, April 14 at 6 p.m. in the Sun Bowl.��Admission is free.

Another defensive standout for UTEP on Wednesday was Mike Sota, who was credited with a team-leading five tackles.

The defense surrendered only one touchdown, as Mark Torrez completed a 40-yard pass to Kavika Johnson for a score.��Johnson is adjusting well to his new role at wide receiver as he tallied three catches for 45 yards.

Torrez finished 4-of-5 passing for 58 yards, and Ryan Metz was 6-for-9 for 40 yards with an interception.

The featured back on Wednesday was Ronald Awatt, who carried the ball 17 times for 42 yards.��Kevin Dove added 34 yards on seven rushes.

�Offensively, Kevin Dove really did some good things at fullback and tailback,� Kugler said.���I saw some good things out of Torrez and Kavika Johnson.��The tight ends did a couple of good things too.�

Newcomers David Lucero and Josh Weeks sparked the tight end contingent.�Lucero had two catches for 16 yards and Weeks added one catch for eight yards.

The Miners have three practices remaining prior to the spring game � Friday, Monday and Wednesday.��The spring game will feature a post-game autograph session with the UTEP seniors, as well as a free clinic for youth 13 and under.
