FERRIS FOOTBALL SPRING GAME SET FOR THIS FRIDAY NIGHT
Bulldogs Cap Off Spring Drills With Crimson & Gold Contest
|Head Coach Jeff Pierce and the Bulldogs will hold their annual Crimson and Gold Spring Football Game on Friday, April 25, at Top Taggart Field.
The Ferris State University football team will cap off its 2008 spring practice schedule with the annual Crimson and Gold Spring Game this Friday evening, April 25, at FSU's Top Taggart Field in Big Rapids, Mich.
The annual spring contest will start at approximately 6 p.m. (EDT) and the public is encouraged to attend free of charge.
Friday's game will mark the end to FSU's official spring practice season, which started April 1 and included 15 workouts per NCAA regulations.
Ferris State will kickoff its 100th season of varsity competition Saturday, Aug. 30, against the Tiffin (Ohio) Dragons in a 2:30 p.m. (EDT) non-conference contest at Tiffin, Ohio. The Bulldogs, who will play an 11-game regular-season schedule, open Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) action the following Saturday, Sept. 6, on the road at 1 p.m. (EDT) versus the Ashland Eagles in Ashland, Ohio. FSU's home opener is slated for Saturday, Sept. 13, against the Findlay Oilers with kickoff set for 7 p.m. (EDT) at FSU's Top Taggart Field.
The Bulldogs posted a 6-5 overall record on the field during the 2007 campaign, which represented the program's eighth winning campaign in 13 years under head coach Jeff Pierce and marks the 13th time in the last 19 years the Bulldogs have finished above .500 for the year. However, the record was recently changed to 7-4 overall in the GLIAC standings, reflecting Saginaw Valley State's decision to forfeit four games this campaign. FSU placed tied for fourth in the conference as the school's final league record was 6-4 following the earned forfeit.
