Wednesday's practice culminated regular Spring Practices for the Beavers, with the only thing left on the schedule being Saturday's Spring Game.
Injuries have decimated several units of Oregon State's football team this Spring, which has caused Mike Riley to have a change of heart on the format of Saturday's Spring Game. Instead of splitting the squad in half like has been done in recent years, fans will see the offense (white) versus the defense (black) on Saturday at Reser Stadium.
The format closely parallels what the team has done in scrimmages so far this spring. It should be more exciting for fans, since the first-team offense will be going against the first-team defense at full strength multiple times throughout the afternoon.
The schedule for Saturday:
10 a.m. - South endzone ticket booths open ($5)
10 a.m. - Fan Fair at Parker Plaza
10-11 a.m. - Football Autograph Session - Reser Stadium field
11 a.m. - KPAM 860 pre-game show
12:08 p.m. - Hall of Honor Tribute - Paul Valenti
12:15 p.m. - Kickoff
2 p.m. - BNO and radio coverage ends
5 p.m - Baseball at Goss Stadium vs. Arizona State (soldout)
And once again, if anyone is interested in covering the Spring Game for Building the Dam ,(I will not be able to attend...) please send me an e-mail and we'll get things squared away. Thanks!
