Two live goal-line periods
Two live “coming out” periods where the offense is backed up at its own end of the field
Two-minute situations (both first-team and second-team units will receive opportunities)
Ball at the 50 with 0:45 remaining – Need a FG to win
Ball at the 50 with 1:00 remaining – Need a TD to win
The squad is then scheduled for multiple periods of open-field scrimmage work with the first, second and third-team units all working against one another.
