Gold-Blue Game Set For April 18
West Virginia University will hold the annual Gold-Blue spring football scrimmage Saturday, April 18, at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m.
The mid-day intrasquad scrimmage will conclude WVU's spring football drills. The offense will be wearing gold uniforms, and the defense will don the blue uniforms. Scoring will be determined by scoring plays and first downs for the offense, and defensive stops, turnovers and touchdowns for the defense.
Tickets are available for $5 each. They can be purchased in person and in advance at the Mountaineer Ticket Office located in the WVU Coliseum or at the Milan Puskar Stadium gate on game day. WVU students will be admitted free with a valid ID. Stadium parking is open except for the lot directly in front of Ruby Memorial Hospital.
Once again this year, there will not be an autograph session following the game, and fans will not be permitted on the field. Mountaineer Football will conduct its annual Fan Day in August with details being released later this summer.
Proceeds from the Gold-Blue Game again will benefit WVU Children's Hospital. The Mountaineers have donated more than $554,413 to Children's Hospital during the past 24 years.
