The approximately 75-play scrimmage starts at 12:30 with the first-team offense and the second-team defense on one team and the second-team offense and the first-team defense on the other. The quarterbacks and running backs Herschel Sims and Desmond Roland will play for both teams and offensive coordinator Todd Monken will call plays for both teams.
Normal game conditions will be in effect during the first half as it pertains to how the score and the clock are kept. At halftime, coach Mike Gundy will determine the clock management of the second half. The first possession of each half will start with a kickoff. Otherwise, the ball will be spotted at the 35-yard line after each score.
Punts, field goals and PATs will be executed, but all punt returns will be fair-caught and there will be no live rush on kicks of any kind.
After the game, fans have the opportunity to meet the Cowboys on the field. 30 minutes will be put on the stadium clock and fans can interact with the players on the field surface during that time.
Postgame media interviews for coaches will be held in the basketball interview room while the meet-and-greet with the public is taking place on the field. Player interviews will follow after the 30-minute fan time has expired. There will be no seating chart in the press box.
