Scrimmage Saturday at noon

Steve Sarkisian and Jake Locker (pictured to the right) will guide the Huskies through their first scrimmage of the spring tomorrow (Saturday) at noon at Husky Stadium — that’s a change in time from what was listed earlier in the week so make note of it.
It will be UW’s sixth practice of the spring, so if you go, you won’t see everything that the team has to offer. While the Huskies are ahead of where they were a year ago in terms of installation, there are still things the team will put in this spring that haven’t yet been implemented.
Sarkisian said following Thursday’s practice that there would be no further installation of new plays, schemes, etc., today to allow the players to play as fast as possible on Saturday. He said seeing where the team is from an injury standpoint will also play a role in what the team does.
“This is kind of the first test,” he said of the scrimmage. “We’ve had five days of installation, we won’t install anything for Saturday, so it will be a chance for guys to go out and play and see if they can take what they learned in the classroom and the first five days of practice and go play football.”
The Huskies will also hope to avoid injury, something they’ve done well so far as nobody has suffered anything serious. Trying to avoid injury was one reason for the new spring schedule of spreading out the practices over five weeks instead of four, though Sarkisian said it’s too early to know the real impact of that move.
“I don’t think we’ve had as many injuries as you could have had, but we won’t really know until the end result, to be honest with you,” he said Thursday.
