The Format

The team has been divided so that the format of the game will feature the 1s vs. the 1s (offense vs. defense) and the 2s vs. the 2s. Orgeron said the game won't feature much special teams.

The Gold team will feature mainly first-teamers on offense as well as the No. 2 defense, while the Purple team will consist of the No. 1 defense and the No. 2 offense.

The first half will feature two 12-minute quarters followed by a 15-minute halftime. In the second half, the Tigers will utilize a running clock for the two 10-minute quarters.
