For UCLA football fans, the annual spring football scrimmage represents an opportunity to get a look at the team they love and a chance to party with fellow fans. This year, they'll also welcome new Bruins Head Coach Jim Mora and his staff.

Unlike a typical practice, the scrimmage plays out more or less like a game, with the offense running live plays against the defense.

The Spring Game will be held in the Rose Bowl, which will allow fans to practice their tailgating. And the event will include the Bruin Marching Band and appearances by the spirit squad and mascots.

After the spring scrimmage, fans young and old are welcome to come down on the field to get autographs from, and pose for pictures with, their favorite players.

Naturally, everyone in the stands will be watching the battle at quarterback, where incumbents Richard Brehaut and Kevin Prince will compete with returning redshirt freshman Brett Hundley and freshman newcomer T.J. Millweard of Fort Worth, Texas.
