Middle Tennessee will conclude spring drills on April 10 with the annual Blue-White Spring Game in Floyd Stadium. Kickoff is set for 1 PM and admission is free.
A determination on whether the scrimmage will be offense vs defense or divided teams will be announced later next week.
During the first half of play the clock will run like a regular game, and then in the second half it will run continuously. However, due to injuries a determination later in game week could result in the entire game using a continuous running clock. Each quarter of play will last 12 minutes. At halftime, Coach Rick Stockstill will present the Spring Awards while recognizing the returning lettermen.
Along with the game, there will be numerous activities available for the Blue Raider faithful. Tailgating will be encouraged at both Walnut Grove and the Greenland Drive parking lot the entire day, while an autograph session with Blue Raider players is scheduled prior to the game from 10:30 AM until 11:30 AM. Photo opportunities will also be available and roster cards will be handed out for free.
In conjunction with the spring game, the athletic department will also hold their annual garage sale in Floyd Stadium. Fans will be able to purchase Nike jerseys, a limited number of helmets, along with a few other items. The garage sale will be located outside of Lightning's Locker Room near Gate 2A and will get underway at 10 AM.
The Blue Raider ticket office will also be on-hand to sell season tickets which are only $100.
Also, the Blue Raider baseball team will be in action that day at 6 PM against conference foe Florida International. Fans who attend the spring game will receive a coupon for free admission to the baseball game. The coupons will be handed out at Gate 2A of Floyd Stadium on game day.
