The Spring Game is almost here, and here are a few pre-event tidbits to consider:
&bull Coach Steve Sarkisian said after practice Wednesday that this scrimmage will be treated more like a game, except that kickoffs and punts will be not utilized. Drives at the beginning of each half, and after scores, will start from the 20-yard line.
&bull As how the teams will be divided, the coach said that had not been determined yet.
&bull The late-week weather forecast calls for temperatures in the low 50s for the 1 p.m. kickoff, with a small chance of rain.
Here is information directly from the Washington Huskies "Spring Central" link, fans have a few options to consider for game-day at the Spring Game on Saturday:
