For those of you who don't subscribe to BGA Premium and are coming to the Dartmouth Green-White game on what should be a glorious Saturday in the Upper Valley, plan to be at Memorial Field by 10 a.m.

Rather than divide up into teams, the game will simply feature the Dartmouth "one" offense against the Dartmouth "one" defense, the "two" offense against the "two" defense, etc.

As has been the case in recent years, they will NOT be tackling. Instead, plays will be whistled dead by officials.

Kickoffs and punts will not be live. There will be a kicking/punting component prior to the start of the scrimmaging.

Captains will be announced and awards presented at halftime.
