Duluth, Minn. - UMD's 2014 Spring Practice season ends with a game on Friday, where the Bulldogs are guaranteed win...but will be it the maroon version or the white version?

It will be the 40th Annual Maroon and White Game as the roster has been split into two teams. Over 1,200 fans attended last year's game and Head Coach Curt Wiese says the goal is simply to give the guys a chance to play in front of a crowd and peform under pressure. Then, there's live contact as the coaches can see who can tackle, who get off a block and who make people miss.

"I think as a program, we continue to evolve with our spring game and evolve with our football program and traditionally, we haven't had big crowds or a lot of exposure for our spring game, but certainly, with last year's crowd and last year's exposure, that has changed," says Wiese.

"We split our team in two and it is a nice little competition among everyone and it is the first time since our last game that we have been extremely live and it will be a good time," says junior running back Logan Lauters.

The Maroon and White Game is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Friday at Malosky Stadium.
