Collins Stadium, 1500 Long Road. The spring game, played in a full scrimmage format, is the finale of the 2011 spring practice season, which began March 23. The game provides an opportunity for fans, faculty, staff, students and friends of the university to preview the 2011 Mean Green football team. Admission to the event is free.

“As a coaching staff, we are excited about spring football because it is our first opportunity to coach this team on the field,” McCarney says. “We are going to make spring practice fun for our fans as well, opening it up to see everything we do from the first practice through the spring game to get them excited about what they can expect from the Mean Green this fall.”

The first home game is Sept. 10, when the Mean Green will host the University of Houston.
