Dayton teams annually played the Red & Blue game until the three-year UD Arena renovation project began in 2017. There wasn’t a scrimmage in 2020 because of the pandemic.
A year ago, Dayton players held a Fan Fest at UD Arena before the season. It was a name, image and likeness opportunity, and the coaches were not involved.
