Spring Game to Benefit Local Food Bank

EUGENE – Food for Lane County will be among the beneficiaries when the University of Oregon kicks off its annual football Spring Game beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday in Autzen Stadium.

The final intrasquad football scrimmage marks the Ducks' last of 15 spring workouts.

For the third year in a row Oregon's athletic department is requesting a donation of three non-perishable food items as admission from everyone who attends Saturday's Spring Game, with all proceeds to be used to restock the Lane County food bank.

Parking for the scrimmage also will be free of charge, with Entries 2 (Martin Luther King Blvd.) and 5 (Leo Harris Parkway) into the Autzen Stadium east parking lot to open at 11 a.m. Access into the stadium will be allowed at 1 p.m.

Oregon's final football workout of the spring will be televised statewide live by Comcast 14 as well as broadcast live by KUGN (590 AM) in Eugene, KXL (750 AM) in Portland and KZZR (1230 AM) in Burns. In addition, the Comcast 14 telecast will be available live on the internet on the athletic department's official website, www.GoDucks.com, through its subscription service O-Zone.
