After six weeks of workouts and 14 practices, spring football concludes for Washington on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
A few skirmishes erupted during Washington’s final spring practice on the East Field behind Husky Stadium.
Cornerback Greg Ducre was often in the middle of dust-ups, which included verbal exchanges and shoving matches with receivers.
“Guys are getting feisty in practice,” junior linebacker John Timu said Thursday morning. “Good thing spring ball is every other day so we get a break from each other.”
After 14 practices and six weeks of workouts, the Huskies admit they’re ready for the last day of spring practice, which culminates at 4 p.m. Saturday with the spring game at Memorial Stadium.

“It’s a day to get better,” Timu said.
The Pac-12 Networks will televise the action, and fans will get their first glimpse of the up-tempo, no-huddle offense installed this spring.
On the defensive side, several players will have one last chance in the spring to impress the coaching staff.
“There’s a lot of positions that are wide open,” defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox said.
Despite the absence of Travis Feeney, who is out this spring rehabbing a shoulder injury, the Huskies are solid at linebacker. They return Shaq Thompson, Feeney and Timu, who combined for 35 starts last season.
Wilcox said he wants to identify two new starters in the secondary and develop depth on the defensive line.
“Conner Cree is a guy that improved this spring,” Wilcox said. “Andrew Hudson always gives you everything that he’s got. Danny Shelton improved this spring. That was promising.”
