The Washburn Ichabods participated in a 90-minute scrimmage Friday night in Yager Stadium as the finale to spring drills. Washburn introduced 18 new players to the squad this year in attempts to rebuild a defense that led it to an 8-3 record. The Ichabods also return one of the top offenses in the nation from last season.

Washburn’s season begins Aug. 28 at 1 p.m. in Golden, Colo., as they face the Colorado School of Mines. Washburn Family Day falls on Sept. 18 at 6 p.m. against Missouri Western in the Ichabods’ conference opener, with the Washburn Hall of Fame Game slated for 1 p.m. on Oct. 9 against Nebraska-Omaha and Homecoming set for Oct. 23 at 1 p.m. against Nothwest Missouri State.
