The two-hour intrasquad game will be televised live nationally on ESPN2, with the telecast also to be transmitted overseas via the Armed Forces Network to military troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
That is in keeping with the surrounding theme for the spring scrimmage, "Support our Troops and Families."
The telecast will be replayed throughout the state of Oregon on Comcast Sports Net (channel 37) at 7 p.m. Saturday, 11 p.m. Saturday and 12 midnight Monday morning.
In addition, the radio broadcast of the Spring Game will be transmitted via the Oregon Sports Network affiliates KUGN in Eugene (590 AM), 95.5 The Game in Portland (FM), KCUP in Newport (1230 AM) and KSKR in Roseburg (101.1 FM). The broadcast also will be carried live across the country via satellite radio - Sirius (channel 122) and XM (channel 143).
The first and second quarters of the game will be shortened to 12 minutes each compared to the normal 15 minutes to help fit the scrimmage into the 2-hour television window, while the clock will run continuously the entire second half.
Pre-game ceremonies will include a moment of silence offered prior to the playing of the national anthem.
Included among the highlights in regards to the armed forces participation in the activities will be the firing of 105 mm howitzers by the 2nd Battalion, 218th Field Artillery unit of the Army National Guard from Portland at halftime. Additionally, halftime ceremonies will include a a 21-gun salute as well as a traditional military flag-folding ceremony, with the flag to be handed to university President Richard Lariviere on behalf of the state of Oregon and the university staff and students who have served overseas.
Immediately following the game, all Oregon football players will give their game jerseys, which have been specially-designed by Nike for this event, to troops that have returned home from duty or about to be deployed overseas, in exchange for a military "Challenge Coin."
Military vehicles and equipment also will be on display outside of Autzen Stadium.
In addition, all military personnel will be able to purchase a reserved seat for the Ducks' Saturday baseball game vs. Washington State, which begins at 5 p.m., for only $5 when accompanied by a military ID.
Saturday's Green Team will be headed by defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti, while the White Team will be paced by offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich.
