Format for Blue/White Game: Because of some injuries and depth concerns at certain positions, the coaching staff has decided to make the Blue/White Game offense vs. defense instead of a standard game format.
The game will have a scoring system. The coaches are in the process of finalizing the system, which will be announced later in the week.
