The annual UC Davis Blue-Gold football scrimmage is tonight at Aggie Stadium at 7 p.m.

It's the final tuneup for the Aggies before their season opener at home against Azusa Pacific on Aug. 30.

Before tonight's scrimmage, UCD is hosting a "Meet the Aggies" fan event, beginning at 6 p.m., giving fans an opportunity to meet UCD athletes and coaches, get autographs and take photos.

The scrimmage and fan event are free.

UCD men off to Europe

The UCD men's basketball team will play five games against club, professional and U.S. military teams during a 10-day trip to Italy and France, the school announced.

The Aggies will arrive in Rome on Monday and spend five days in Italy before traveling to Nice, France, for the remainder of the trip.

The Aggies, preparing for their second season under coach Jim Les, will play three games in Italy and two in France.

CIM just about at capacity

The California International Marathon has reached its cap of 8,000 entries, according to race organizers, but there are still two ways runners can get a spot in the Dec. 2 race.

Runners can purchase a charity entry for $250, with proceeds funding youth fitness programs, elite athlete training, trail building in the American River Parkway and cross country courses.

Also, runners who meet the CIM time standards – five minutes slower than Boston Marathon qualifying times – are guaranteed entry during an Oct. 1-15 registration period.

Add an estimated 150-200 elite runners and entries for the 30th running of the CIM could surpass 8,500, according to race director John Mansoor.
