The only portion of the contest that will be formally scored will be a five-segment Red Zone scrimmage that will lead off the event. 

2019 SPRING GAME RED ZONE SCORING FORMAT

OFFENSE             DEFENSE              

Touchdown          7 points                  0 points
Field Goal             3 points                  4 points
No Score               0 points                  7 points

Based on weather conditions or other factors, the script for Saturday’s game is subject to change but is currently slated to feature the following periods after the conclusion of the Red Zone scrimmage as well as a “halftime” intermission.

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.

Following the Spring Game and a cooling off period for the players, an announcement will be made when fans will be allowed on to Worsham Field to get autographs from our student-athletes. This autograph session will last approximately 60 minutes. In the event of inclement weather, fans will be notified of any changes to the autograph session.

    1. Of course it’s not a game. Never has been even when it was a “game”.

      This might give fans a little better idea of what the team is capable of.

      And if nothing else, it will give fans an idea of how scrimmage games work. I like it.

      1. Back in the day it was a game, and got rather intense at times, especially tackling. Coaches would say they would have all summer to heal, i.e. Jerry Claibourne.

  1. Looks like he is using this as just another practice but it will be good for fans to kinda see how they scrimmage in practice
