Not surprisingly, the quarterbacks will be at the forefront of Saturday’s Oklahoma spring game.

The scoring system for the game will be based on the four quarterbacks—Trevor Knight, Cody Thomas, Justice Hansen and Baker Mayfield. Two will be wearing red and two white.

Whichever team’s quarterback is on the field when the offense scores will earn the points. If the defense scores, the team opposite of the quarterback on the field will earn the points.

The spring game kicks off at 2 p.m. Tickets are available for $10.

With a spring game ticket stub, fans will be admitted to Saturday afternoon’s Oklahoma baseball game against Texas for $4. The game is scheduled to start at 4 p.m.

FLOWERS LEARNING FROM MILLARD

Oklahoma freshman fullback Dimitri Flowers has been compared by many coaches and teammates to former Sooner standout Trey Millard, who became a fan favorite because of his versatility and toughness.

Millard, whose career ended with a torn ACL last October, has watched film with Flowers this spring, the freshman from San Antonio said.

“It's honestly an amazing feeling,” Flowers said of being compared to Millard. “He's such a great player. He's been helping me get better along with Blake (Bell) and (Aaron Ripkowski).”

Flowers said the plan all along was for him to play a Millard-type role, and that the biggest adjustment for him this spring has been learning all the terminology.

“It's been real valuable,” Flowers said of enrolling early. “Me coming in early, it's given me some early playing time hopefully, and hopefully I can get some experience and learn from the older people and see where it goes from there.”
