Tallahassee, Fla. — The Florida State football team will complete spring drills with the Garnet and Gold Game presented by WTWC/NBC 40 and The Tallahassee Democrat on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at Doak Campbell Stadium.
A limited number of stadium gates will open at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and the public is asked to sit on the west side of the stadium. Stadium gates B, C, D, F and X only will be open and the concession stands and restrooms will be open on both levels of the west side only. Standard stadium safety policy will be in place so fans will not be allowed to bring umbrellas or coolers into the stadium.
The Great Hall of the Moore Athletic Center, which houses the national championship trophies and both Charlie Ward and Chris Weinke’s Heisman trophies, will be open from 8:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Saturday only. In addition, fans can visit the interactive games and collect give away items beginning at 12:00 p.m. at Seminole Village on Langford Green just outside the south end of the stadium.
The spring game will be a modified scrimmage for the team with a special scoring system. The offense will get six points for a touchdown, three for a field goal and one for an extra point, but can also score two points by converting a fourth down. In addition, the offense would be awarded a single point for a first down on their first series of each possession. The defense can score six points with a touchdown and two with a safety, and can also score three points with a blocked field goal, one point with a blocked extra point, and two points with a stop on fourth down. The defense will also be awarded three points for a turnover and a point for forcing a three-and-out on the first series of each possession. The scrimmage will culminate in overtime and goal line drills which will not be scored.
Traditional Awards will be presented by Coach Bowden at halftime along with a very special presentation between two former FSU stars.
