The head coaches for Saturday's Red-White game will be safeties coach Morgan Scalley (Red) and tight ends coach/special teams coordinator Jay Hill (White) ... The game will feature 10-minute quarters with a normal clock in the first half and a running clock in the second half. Halftime will last eight minutes ... Each team will be allowed two timeouts per half ... There will not be any 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."


There will be several presentations during the quarter and halftime breaks, including the presentation of the 2012-13 Deseret First Duel All-Sports Trophy. Utah holds a 25-19 lead with six points still up for grabs in baseball and softball, which means the worst the Utes can do is tie for the rivalry trophy. The Utah women's basketball team will be honored for its runner-up finish in the Women's N.I.T. The winners of the 2013 Ultimate Tailgate Championship and Food Competition will recognized and the volleyball team take the field during an announcement of its move to the Huntsman Center next fall.
