Kicking off a big day in Texas Longhorns sports, head coach Steve Sarkisian and his team will take the field at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday to finish spring practice with the Orange-White game.

The scrimmage starts at 1 p.m. Central on Longhorn Network. More information is available here for those planning on attending.

On Friday, the school released the injury list for the game, which includes 11 players — punter Ryan Bujcevski (knee), center Rafiti Ghirmai (hamstring), linebacker D.J. Harris Jr. (knee), wide receiver Dajon Harrison (ankle), linebacker Jaden Hullaby (knee), offensive lineman Derek Kerstetter (ankle), tight end Brayden Liebrock (shoulder), deep snapper Justin Mader (shoulder), linebacker DeMarvion Overshown (shoulder), wide receiver Jake Smith (foot), and defensive tackle T’Vondre Sweat (shoulder).

The rosters for the Orange and White teams are also available now.

“We’ll play a game. We’ll keep score. The kicking game will not be live, but we’ll tackle when we’re on offense and defense. If you see a guy in a green jersey that means those guys are non-contact and we’ll have a quicker whistle if the ball gets near him,” Sarkisian said in an interview on 104.9 The Horn this week.

“But the reality of it is, it’ll be a very, very, very pared down version of our offense and our defense, it’ll be a very conservative style of play, in essence, not showing a lot, but it should allow our guys to play fast, but I want them to compete, they put in a lot of work. They deserve to go out and play and every guy’s going to get an opportunity to get out there and and do his thing and run around and fly around and make plays and it should be very competitive in the end and that’s the whole idea.”
