OSU Spring Game activities announced

APRIL 18 WILL be the first chance most BeavFans have had to see Oregon State under new coach Gary Andersen. It’s a new attitude under Andersen this spring and a new, hard-hitting format debuts for the Spring Game at Reser Stadium at 1 p.m.

“The Spring Game is a great opportunity for our players to compete in front of Beaver Nation,” Gary Andersen said in a release from the school. “We will separate the players and coaches into two teams and play four quarters in a modified format. We are excited for the day and we will have ways for students and fans to participate throughout the event.”

There’s an abundance of story lines this spring: Who will be the starting quarterback? Who is on track to replace the departed defensive starters? How is the offense evolving?

To assist with annual support for OSU Marching Band and Cheer programs, OSU will have an affordable ticket price for the Spring Game with tickets only $6 or $5 for four or more. All seating will be general admission on the east-side of Reser Stadium, including the Club level. Loge and Suite holders will have exclusive access to those levels. Tickets can easily be accessed through beavertickets.com, 800-GO-BEAVS or at the game at the Reser Stadium ticket office located at Gate H and the Gill Coliseum front ticket office.

OSU students are free with valid school-issued identification.

Here’s what you need to know:
• Gates open at 12 p.m. with open seating on Reser Stadium’s east side, including the Club Level. The Founders Loge and Suites will be exclusive for those with season tickets in those areas. The Club level concessions and bar will be in service for the game.

• Select-A-Seat. Several season ticket locations in the Club level and east side lower sideline will be tagged as available for fans to purchase at the Spring Game. OSU ticketing and a new Pac-12 sales staff (OSU is the first to utilize a new ticket sales resource in collaboration with the conference) will be located in Club level to answer questions, renew season tickets or to secure new season tickets.
