Thursday, Aug. 23, the 2012 football team gave fans a taste of what to expect for the upcoming season.

The intra-squad scrimmage showcased the offense in white uniforms and the defense in blue. The quarterbacks were in yellow.

The scrimmage was action-packed and hard-hitting. It came at the end of the Welcome Week festivities and im-mediately followed the ribbon cutting.

The Storm’s first game will be Sept. 1, at Texas A&M University-Commerce, with kickoff at 6 p.m.

The first home game will be Sept. 15, against Southern Arkansas starting at 6 p.m. Three hours before kickoff, the streets by Paul Laird Field will be blocked off for the tailgate party.
