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.
