TXST Bobcats To Hold Maroon-Gold Scrimmage
The Texas State football team will hold a Maroon vs. Gold controlled scrimmage on Saturday, March 20, at 6:45 p.m. on the Jim Wacker Field at Bobcat Stadium. Gates for the scrimmage will open at 5:30 on the west side of the stadium and fans are encouraged to tailgate in the parking lot prior to the start of the scrimmage. Admission for the scrimmage is free.
The scrimmage will feature the Bobcat offensive units playing against the defensive units in a controlled scrimmage with game officials. The football will be placed at different positions on the field with the offensive units trying to move the ball under a standard four-down format until either they score or the defensive holds. The first-team offense will line up against the first team defense. When the offense scores or is forced to punt, the second-team offense will compete against the second-team defense. Each group will continue to rotate in this manner for 75-90 minutes.
