    UConn's Blue/White Showcase moved to Friday night

    Storrs — The UConn Football Blue/White Showcase, originally schedule for Thursday, has been moved to Friday at 7 p.m.

    The even, a practice open to the public, will be held at the Joseph J. Morrone Stadium at Rizza Performance Center. The rescheduled date will allow every student-athlete on the football roster to participate in the Showcase.

    Gates to Morrone Stadium will open at 5:30 p.m. and concessions will be available at that time, along with giveaways, and attractions. Additionally, the first 1,500 students in attendance will receive a free UConn Football t-shirt.

    The No. 15 UConn baseball team will play Villanova at 6 p.m., and due to the close proximity of Elliot Ballpark to Morrone Stadium, the baseball game will also be free of charge.

    The festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a live performance by the band Capital View on the north side of Morrone Stadium, near the Mark R. Shenkman Training Center. The on-field practice is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. The football showcase event is free of charge, but claiming a ticket is a requirement to attend. General public tickets can be claimed here. Student-specific tickets can be claimed here. Previously claimed tickets will be valid for the new date.

    Fans interested in attending should plan on parking in the South Garage. Jim Calhoun Way will be closed from Hillside Road to the entrance of South Garage, similar to basketball gamedays, from 5-7 p.m. Jim Calhoun Way will be closed from the Hilltop Rear Gate, near Separatist Drive, to Alumni Drive, from 5 p.m. until the end of the event. The best way to enter the South Garage is by accessing Jim Calhoun Way via Alumni Drive.
