The West Virginia Mountaineers and head coach Dana Holgorsen wrap up their spring practice schedule on Saturday with the annual Gold-Blue game at Mountaineer Field. Kickoff is set for 6:00 p.m, after an afternoon of festivities that include a concert and an old-timers game.
The format of the Gold-Blue Game will remain similar to previous years, as the first-team offense will run a series until it wither scores or is stopped, followed by the second-team offense doing the same. The No.1 offense, at least initially, would match-up with the No.2 defense, and vice versa.
Holgorsen, known for his creative play-calling, reiterated that Saturday's spring game would be low-key in that regard, with the main focal point being his players exiting the field Saturday in pristine health heading into the fall.
