WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Purdue football team will hold its biannual Jersey Scrimmage on Saturday in Ross-Ade Stadium. The event is free to all and will begin around 10 a.m.

The scrimmage will pit the offense against the defense, with the winner earning the right to wear the black jerseys for practice. The offense won the inaugural jersey scrimmage on a last-second play a year ago and defended its title in training camp last August.

PLAYING RULES
The ball will be put in play at various spots to create a variety of game-like situations.

Each drive will consist of six plays.

- If the offense has a drive sustained on its first possession, it will be allowed tocontinue the drive beyond six plays to its conclusion. If the offense advances for a first down on its first three plays, three additional plays will be added. If the first drive is stopped, forcing the offense to rest, the drive will end on the sixth play not matter where the ball is.

- Penalties will be assessed by the referees and will not count as a play if accepted. If the penalty is rejected, the play will count.

Head coach Darrell Hazell is the official scorer for the event and will award points to the offense and defense as follows.
