CORVALLIS, Ore. -- The Beavers practiced for the final time Thursday before Saturday's spring game which will be more like an extended practice.
Due to a limited number of offensive linemen, the Beavers will run roughly 50-to-60 plays with some special teams mixed in, instead of an actual game.
"We're still going to be scrimmaging, so I don't think it will change too much," said quarterback Sean Mannion. "I think it will be similar to last year, so I don't really know other than what I did last year."
"I'm a little disappointed because it's my first spring," said running back Malcolm Agnew. "I wanted a real spring game, but I think we're still excited to go out there and play better."
Head coach Mike Riley said he still expects the Beavers to compete regardless of the format.
"It has an atmosphere of more like a game because of more people in the stands," said Riley. "Some guys lose their minds just because there are more people watching. It's good for them to deal with that and then perform."
The fan fest will begin at 10 A.M. and then the scrimmage will begin around 12:00 P.M.
