Spring game update

Army football fever will be tested Wednesday.

Army will hold its Black/Gold Game at 6 p.m. on Ash Wednesday.

It will be interesting to see how many fans will show up for the controlled scrimmage that will likely last less than an hour?

It will be Army’s offense vs. Army’s defense.

The team will take the field around 5:15 p.m. and loosen up by running some of its daily drills.

The game will consist of offensive situations including 3rd-and-3, 3rd-and-6 and red-zone plays. The first-team offense will play against the first-team defense. The second and third teams will match up against each other.

Juniors Max Jenkins and Jimmy Reitter will be the only quarterbacks.

The offense will receive 1 point if it converts a third down or makes an extra point, 6 points for a red-zone touchdown and 3 points for a field goal. The defense will receive 1 point if it stops the offense from converts a third down, 4 points on a red-zone field-goal attempt, 7 points on a fourth-down stop or turnover in the red zone. Coach Ellerson said he may reward bonus points for a big offensive play or a forced turnover by the defense on the third-down situations.

The following players are banged up or injured and aren’t expected to participate in the game: quarterback Trent Steelman, linebacker Zach Watts, wide receiver Austin Barr, guard Frank Allen, linebacker Nate Combs, defensive tackle A.J. Mackey, defensive end Parker Whitten, safety Ty Shrader, rover Josh Jones, linebacker Ryan McCollum, quarterback Chase Cresto, cornerback Waverly Washington
