Spring football camp enters the home stretch with two practices and a scrimmage on tap this week. Saturday marks the second and final major scrimmage of the spring in preparation for the Red-White spring game on April 21. Leading up to this Saturday's scrimmage will be practices on Tuesday (3-5 p.m.) and Thursday (3-5 p.m.).


Saturday's scrimmage will run about 80 plays and is tentatively scheduled for 10 a.m. in Rice-Eccles Stadium. The scrimmage will not move inside for weather, so if conditions are poor, the time or even the day of the scrimmage are subject to change ... The two deep at offensive guard has undergone a few changes. Jeremiah Tofaeono is now the starting left guard while Sam Brenner slides over to start at right guard. Brenner's backup is Miles Mason--the starter a year ago--but who has cracked the two deep for the first time this spring. Latu Heimuli has moved from right to left guard where he will back up Tofaeono ... Mike Honeycutt is now the co-starter at nickel back with Lewis Walker.


In addition to the Utah football news, videos and photos on the main athletics social networking sites Utah Athletics on Facebook and Utah Athletics on Twitter, the football team now has its own social media sites: Utah Football on Facebook and Utah Football on Twitter.


Stars of the first scrimmage, held last Saturday, included running backs Harvey Langi and Jarrell Oliver, receiver Dres Anderson and defensive end Joe Kruger. Langi rushed nine times for 42 yards and Oliver rushed 11 times for 49 yards and a touchdown while starter John White took the day off. Anderson caught seven passes for 96 yards and a 22-yard touchdown from freshman quarterback Travis Wilson. Kruger recorded three sacks for 23 yards.


The third-annual Ultimate Tailgate will be held on Saturday, April 21 before the Red-White Spring Game. The competition at this year's event will be for "best barbeque." Celebrity judges will rate the competing BBQs starting at 10:30 a.m. Spots are reserved in the Rice-Eccles Stadium west lot based on the size of the tailgate. Tailgate participants should pre-register at http://utahutes.cstv.com/ot/2012-ultimate-tailgate-landing.html.
