The 2014 Urbana University Football Spring Game will be played on Thursday, April 17th at 5:00 p.m. at UU Stadium. Admission is free, and scoring will be a little different than a normal game. The offense will still be awarded 6 pts. for a TD, 1 pt. for an extra point, and 3 pts. for a FG. The defense will be awarded 6 pts. for a defensive TD, 6 pts. for a takeaway, and 3 pts. for forcing a 3-and-out. If the offense gets a first down, but does not score a TD or make a FG, then there are no points awarded to either side and a new drive will begin.
