With spring practices on Wednesday and Friday closed to the public and media, the Purdue faithful's next opportunity to check out the Boilermakers in action will be Saturday at the "Jersey Scrimmage" in Ross-Ade Stadium. Fans are invited to attend the offense vs. defense scrimmage, with the action beginning shortly after 10 a.m.
Purdue faculty and staff are invited to "take the field" from 9:30 to 10 a.m. to take pictures and hang out on the playing surface of Ross-Ade prior to the scrimmage. Faculty and staff are then encourage to sit in sections 105 and 106, as head coach Darrell Hazell and athletics director Morgan Burke will address the group following the scrimmage.
The winner of the scrimmage will earn the bragging rights to the "jersey" for rest of the year.
2013 Purdue Jersey Scrimmage
The ball will be put in play at various spots on the field to create a number of game-like situations.
Each drive will consist of six plays.
1. If the offense has a drive sustained on its first six possessions, it will be allowed to continue the drive beyond six plays to its conclusion. Also, if the offense receives a first down within the first three plays of the drive, three additional plays will be added. However, if the first drive is stopped and the offense starts over, the drive will end on the sixth play no matter where the ball is.
2. Penalties will be assessed and will not count as a play if accepted. If the penalty is rejected, the play will count.
