Annual scrimmage moves to Easter


The Longhorns’ annual Orange-White spring football scrimmage, which marks the end of spring practices will be held on Easter Sunday, March 31. No time has been set for the game yet. Texas opens spring practice Feb. 21 and will not practice during the academic spring break March 11-15. 

It will be the first opportunity for fans to see the four players who enrolled early this semester: quarterback Tyrone Swoopes, tight end Geoff Swaim, linebacker Deoundrei Davis and offensive tackle Jake Raulerson. Swoopes is the only quarterback currently committed to play for Texas next season while Swaim is a junior college transfer from Butte Community College in California. Raulerson, who can also play defensive tackle, was the first Class of 2013 prospect to pledge to play for Texas last February.
