UConn Athletic Communications – April 18, 2013 – Football Spring Game Update

STORRS, Conn. (April 18, 2013) – The University of Connecticut football team will conclude spring practice on Saturday, April 20 with the Blue vs. White Spring Game at noon at Rentschler Field. Admission and parking are free. Parking lots open at 9 a.m. with stadium gates opening at 10:30 a.m. with FanFest activities inside.

Those attending the game are reminded that personal bags are not allowed to be brought into events at Rentschler Field — other than bags containing personal medical supplies.

Saturday’s Blue vs. White Spring Game will not have a typical team vs. team format due to the fact that the Huskies have a limited amount of healthy players in certain position areas. The UConn offense will scrimmage against the UConn defense in various situations, including standard gameday, “back to the wall” starting at the one-yard line and having to move downfield and red zone.

UConn head coach Paul Pasqualoni also has announced that redshirt junior offensive lineman Alex Mateas (Ottawa, Ont.) has been indefinitely suspended due to a violation of team rules and will not participate on Saturday.

    Very dismayed at the slow erosion of UConn’s Div I football program. I was going to schedule a weekend in Connecticut to take in the Spring Game and festivities – however, I am not going to drive over 500 miles and spend
    two nights overnight, simply to see a regular (if final)
    practice. It is time to get serious about the program and the fans. Since the old Tom Jackson days I always wondered how many players it takes to play a Spring GAME. Poor field, poor play …..Poor Program!!!!!!

    Really excited for this years spring game, It’s nice to see some progress made, how players are adjusting to new positions or coaches, and how players like Joe Williams or others that we didn’t see much of last year are developing. Plus hopefully it can push talk towards football and away from uniforms/logos.
