The rosters for the annual Blue-Gold game have been set, with the Blue and Gold teams squaring off with semi-balanced rosters.

Quarterbacking the Blue will be Dayne Crist and Everett Golson. Running the show for the Gold offense will be Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix. Skill players for the Blue will be Theo Riddick, TJ Jones, Cierre Wood, Tyler Eifert and John Goodman. Skill players for the Gold will be Deion Walker, Robby Toma, Jonas Gray, Mike Ragone and Jake Golic.

While the offensive line will be split in half and playing for both teams, the defense on both side has some impact players.

Key defenders on the Blue roster:

Gary Gray
Manti Te’o (likely only in spirit)
Aaron Lynch
Harrison Smith
Jamoris Slaughter
Austin Collinsworth
Carlo Calabrese
Steve Filer
Prince Shembo
Kapron Lewis-Moore
Hafis Williams

For the Gold Team:

Ishaq Williams
Bennett Jackson
Kendall Moore
Louis Nix III
Robert Blanton
Danny Spond
Zeke Motta
Darius Fleming
Dan Fox
Ethan Johnson
Kona Schwenke
Brandon Newman

I can assure you that any talk Brian Kelly may have had about seventy degree and sunny skies was wishful thinking. Spring may bring plenty of beautiful sunny days to South Bend, but Friday wasn’t one of them and Saturday doesn’t appear to be either. (There’s a better than 50 percent chance that the rain will just keep going through Saturday afternoon.)

Either way, South Bend is filling up for a much-needed football Saturday and if you aren’t able to catch the game in person you’ve got no excuse not to catch the broadcast on Versus, live at 2 p.m. ET.
