Tennessee spring football practice wraps up on Saturday with the Orange & White game. Here is what you need to know if you plan on attending:

FAN APPRECIATION DAY:  Get there early

Butch Jones and several players will sign autographs for fans from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. It's recommended you arrive early.  The line will form at Gate 7 at 7 a.m.  Gates open at 10:30 a.m.

Butch Jones will be located in the North end zone of Neyland Stadium.  Fans will be allowed one item for autograph per player or coach.

You can also get your picture taken with the Tennessee cheer and dance teams, along with Smokey. 

ON THE FIELD

Game time is slated for 2 p.m. ET, and the game will broadcast on the SEC Network. You can also listen to the broadcast on utsports.com

This year is expected to be similar to last year- more of an event than a game. The Vols will compete in the Circle of Life drill, one-on-one situations, and quarterback/kicking challenges.

SCORING: GLAD WE DON'T HAVE TO DO IT

Tennessee will use the following scoring system for the spring game:

+/- Four yards:  1 point

Big Play (TFL, sack, +16 yards):  3 points

Defensive turnover:  7 points

One-on-one situations:  1 point
