CAPE GIRARDEAU -- The Southeast Missouri State University football team will conclude spring drills with a public scrimmage, on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at Houck Stadium.

It will be an offense vs. defense situational scrimmage with a point system to determine whether the offense or defense wins the scrimmage.

"We've had a good spring, but there is still work to be done," said Southeast coach Tim Billings. "The situational scrimmage will help us determine how far we have come this spring on both sides of the ball. It will be our No. 1 offense vs. our No. 1 defense, so it should be very competitive. We will have Ohio Valley Conference officials so it will be a game-like atmosphere."

The public is invited to attend with no admission charged.

"If you're ready for some football, we hope you will come out Saturday evening," Billings said. "It should be a lot of fun."
