The Dallas Cowboys are technically in the middle of training camp, even if it feels nothing like it. As you are aware, the world is drastically different than when football was beginning a year ago and we are all having to adjust to it. This obviously includes the NFL, and the league is taking many different steps to ensure safety as they try to play a football season, but there are obviously those that wonder how that can all happen from a logistical standpoint.
Some of the changes to this point involve what we would normally see over the course of the next few weeks. This weekend begins August and that time of year is generally known for preseason football. There will be no exhibition games at all this season, but the Cowboys will hold a knock-off of one that will now prove even more valuable than before.
The blue and white scrimmage will take place at AT&T Stadium on August 30th
While the Dallas Cowboys are still in Oxnard they put on the blue and white scrimmage. This is exactly what it sounds like - a scrimmage that takes place between the team’s offense and defense.
Normally this event is streamed on the Cowboys social channels for those that are not at camp to watch. This is in many senses the first time that we can “watch” the Cowboys every season, and while it will obviously be extremely different in 2020, it appears as if the team is going to make it happen this season.
105.3 The Fan’s Mike Fisher reported on Thursday morning that the blue and white scrimmage is set to take place on August 30th and at AT&T Stadium. He also noted that the Cowboys are working on how fans, season ticket holders, and media can possibly be in attendance.
If we are to assume that this will in fact be streamed online as it always has been, then this will be the only opportunity to see the Cowboys before the regular season begins six weeks (approximately) from now. It will also be some of the closest action to real football that the team will experience before the games begin.
