TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona Wildcats football team is lining up for a scrimmage and 'Meet the Team' autograph session this weekend, but there is a minor change in the event after recent news of possible NCAA violations at other schools involving the alleged sale of players' signatures.

Gates open for the Red and Blue scrimmage Saturday at 4:30 and the scrimmage begins at 6 p.m.

Admission and parking for the event is free, and fans can get autographs after the scrimmage. 

During the past two weeks there have been several controversies surrounding college football player autographs being sold online, which could be a NCAA violation. The Louisville Cardinals and Miami Hurricanes have limited or done away with player autographs at their open practices in response to the controversy.

An Arizona Athletics spokesperson said it is always a general concern and they will be limiting what fans may bring to the field to be signed.  Fans can bring a ball or a poster or something else, but will only be allowed to have one item per person. 

According to university officials there are no controversies about Wildcats' signatures being sold. The sales are just a general concern for the university.
