LOGAN -- The chill in the air is a perfect setting for Utah State's Blue vs. White spring football game, set for 2 p.m. at Romney Stadium.
The University of Utah will also cap its spring football workouts with the Red-White spring scrimmage.
"I want to see great execution and great efficiency, especially early on when the veteran players are going against each other," said first-year USU coach Matt Wells. "Offensively, I want to see balls completed and touchdowns. On the flip side, it's about time we get a pick in the back end. The third downs will be fun to watch because it's been such an emphasis on both sides of the ball."
Following the scrimmage, all former Aggie lettermen in attendance will be invited onto the field and asked to line up in the north end zone, where they will be recognized as a group. This group will also meet and shake hands with every current USU football player prior to the players interacting with all Aggie fans on the field during their autograph session, where a limited number of USU spring football posters will be available.
The game itself will pit the offense (Blue) vs. the defense (White). The first half will consist of two 15-minute quarters played with normal clock rules. Following a five-minute halftime, the second half will consist of two 10-minute running time quarters (except for the final two-minutes of the fourth quarter). Both teams will have opportunities to score.
The game is free to all USU fans.
Kyle Whittingham's Utes will close 2013 spring camp with the 10th-annual Red-White spring game at 1 p.m. at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
The Red-White game is free, as are several events leading up to it. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 networks.
The head coaches for today's Red-White game will be safeties coach Morgan Scalley (Red) and tight ends coach/special teams coordinator Jay Hill (White). The game will feature 10-minute quarters with a normal clock in the first half and a running clock in the second half.
There will be several presentations during the quarter and halftime breaks, including the presentation of the 2012-13 Deseret First Duel All-Sports Trophy. Utah holds a 25-19 lead with six points still up for grabs in baseball and softball, which means the worst the Utes can do is tie for the rivalry trophy.
