Charlottesville, Va. - The Virginia football team will hold its annual Orange-Blue Spring Scrimmage on Saturday, April 6 at Scott Stadium.

The Spring Scrimmage will be webcast on ESPN3.
"I'm pleased with how our spring practices have gone thus far," Virginia head coach Mike London said. "We've been hard at work implementing new systems on offense, defense, and special teams. The Spring game on April 6 will be a great test to see how far we have progressed toward our goal of becoming a smart, tough and aggressive football team."

Jerseys from the 2006 to 2009 seasons will be on sale for $75 and a variety of bowl jerseys will be available in limited numbers for $150.
