The spring game sold out originally in just more than 24 hours, and last week there were more than 9,500 requests for 1,000 tickets made available in a public lottery. With a capacity crowd expected on Saturday morning, fans are encouraged to arrive early.
Coach Frost recently addressed the media and indicated that the game would be a “normal” game minus a few kicking plays. The second half will include a running clock until the final five minutes. Coach Frost also won’t be calling any plays, leaving the game to his assistants.
