HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED

The Red-White game will feature 10-minute quarters with a standard clock in the first half and a running clock in the second half. There will be an eight-minute halftime ... Each team will be allowed one timeout (2:30 each) per quarter ... There will be no punt or kickoff returns. Kickoffs will be placed at the 35-yard line and punts will be marked at the spot of the fair catch ... After a score of any type, if the scoring team is behind by more than 10 points, it will retain possession of the ball ... While there will be no limitations on what the offense can run, the defense is limited to playing "base defense."

HONORARY HEAD COACHES APPOINTED

Two honorary coaches will assist the Ute staff for the Red-White game. Eight-year-old Mac Brennan of Salt Lake City, who was diagnosed with leukemia in December and has been a fixture at football and basketball practices while undergoing treatment for the disease, will coach the Red team alongside new wide receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield. Mac, the son of Utah senior associate athletics director Kyle Brennan and Utah coordinator of football academics Beth Brennan, has spent this spring assisting running backs coach Dennis Erickson at practice. Twelve-year-old Tristan Chidester, a bone cancer patient from Herriman, Utah, who dreams of playing football for the Utes, will coach the White team, assisted by first-year offensive line coach Jim Harding. Doctors diagnosed Tristan with an aggressive bone cancer in 2010, which eventually took his leg. He has been cancer free for over a year and has been attended a few Utah football practices during his recovery.

QUOTING Kyle Whittingham

"We selected Tristan and Mac to coach this year's Red-White spring game as a tribute to their fighting, resilient and winning spirit in battling cancer. Their courage and positive attitude is an example and inspiration to us all and we could not be more honored to have them both on the sideline Saturday as we wrap up spring practice with this year's Red-White game."
