Charlottesville, VA – The Virginia football team will play its Orange-Blue spring football game Saturday, April 2 at Scott Stadium following the UVa men’s lacrosse team’s game against Maryland that starts at noon.
“This should be a very exciting afternoon at Scott Stadium for our fans and I’m excited to be a part of it,” said Virginia coach Mike London. “We want to do our part to make it a great day, so we are planning to play a game format and not just hold a scrimmage. I think that’s what our fans want and I think the players enjoy the competition you get from having a game. We will name our captains and recognize the players who have achieved in the classroom and in the community. I promise we’ll have some fun out there as well. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
The football team will take the field approximately five minutes after the conclusion of the men’s lacrosse team’s game. The football team’s Orange-Blue spring game will begin after a warm-up period that will last approximately 35 minutes.
