WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The rosters and rules have been set for the 2012 Black and Gold Game at Ross-Ade Stadium. Kickoff for the annual spring game is set for 1 p.m., but there are a host of other activities Boilermaker fans can participate in beforehand. Click here for the Saturday schedule!
2012 Black and Gold Game
The Black Team will have members of the No. 1 offense, while the Gold Team will feature the No. 1 defense.
The first half will include all special teams, at "thud-tempo".
The Black Team will have first possession.
The second half will have the ball placed on the Gold Team's own 35 and the game will proceed as normal.
There will be no special teams in the second half, excluding field goal attempts.
Should an offensive unit be forced into a punting situation in the second half, there will be an automatic 40-yard change of possession marked off and the opposition's offense will take over there.
Scoring is normal, just as in a regular game.
Should too many players get nicked up during the course of the game, the coaching staff will stop and put the team into situational scrimmages at that point.
