The 78th Annual Blue-Gold Game will kickoff at 1:30 on Saturday afternoon at Notre Dame Stadium. It is the most anticipated spring football game for the Irish in years.
Of course, there is the battle at Quarterback and the first chance for the Irish faiteful to see the four contenders in action. Freshman Jimmy Clausen will start for the Blue team and will be backed up by Demetrius Jones. Zach Frazer starts for the Gold with Evan Sharpley backing him up. The starters were chosen via coin flip. Offensively, there are also battles at RB and WR.
On the defense, fans can see how Corwin Brown's new 3-4 defense is looking. The top returning defensive players will play for the Gold Team.
Two former Irish legendary coaches will be back on the sidelines coaching on Saturday. Ara Parseghian will lead the Blue team, while Lou Holtz will coach the Gold Team.
WNDU will have complete coverage of the game on Newscenter 16 at 6PM and 11 on Saturday.
