SEC Spring Football Schedule: When Your Team Is Playing Their Annual Scrimmage

Every team in the SEC -- well, almost every team in the SEC -- has a spring game coming up this month. Here's a look at when they will be played and the TV arrangements

Spring football is finally here. The first glimmer of hope that college football is around the corner -- and the first crowds of 100,000 at Bryant-Denny Stadium -- have arrived. This weekend brings a couple of games, followed by six scrimmages next week and the remainder over the next two weeks. Here's a look at the spring games that will be played, along with a fun fact* or tidbit about each:


Grove Bowl (Ole Miss), 1 p.m. ET, CSS / ESPN3: The offense is expected to score 20 points against the first-team defense, then three against the second-team defense.

LSU Spring Game, 2 p.m. ET: With chest and a large variety of athleticism, the Tigers will strive to fill up what is perceived to be their fate. The ultimate desire is to integrate themselves into higher-caliber discussions with connections to college football.


Black and Gold Game (Vanderbilt), 11 a.m. ET: It will be a success if Derek Mason doesn't leave for a B1G school at halftime.

Garnet and Black Game (South Carolina), Noon ET, ESPNU: #CLOWNEYNOTCOMIN'. The school has ordered 100 extra visors -- just in case.

Maroon-White / Super Bulldog Weekend (Mississippi St.), 1 p.m. ET: Fire Dan Mullen. Regardless of what happens.

G-Day (Georgia), 1 p.m. ET, CSS / ESPN3: Mark Richt has lost contro-- you don't need me to finish that, do you?

Orange and Blue Game (Florida), 1:30 p.m. ET: In a new twist, starting players will be wrapped in Kevlar and wheeled around the field on hand carts. Can't be too careful.

Orange and White Game (Tennessee), 3 p.m. ET: As usual, I am at a loss in finding anything interesting to say about Butch Jones.


Alabama Spring Game, 2 p.m. ET, ESPNU: Twenty bucks says Nick Saban screams at a punter at some point.

Missouri Spring Game, 2 p.m. ET: No matter what happens, some will take it as evidence that Missouri doesn't really belong in the SEC.

Auburn A-Day, 3 p.m. ET, ESPN: Given the pace of Auburn's offense, SportsCenter is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. ET.


Red-White Game (Arkansas), 2 p.m. ET, CST: In contrast, CST is not expected to return to regular programming until around 9 p.m. ET.

Blue/White Game (Kentucky), 3:30 p.m. ET: Players will be divided into different teams based on how well they know the rules of Yahtzee. They will mostly try to avoid doing this:


Sorry. It never gets old.


Texas A&M: Sigh. Guys, we really need to talk about this. Have a traditional spring game. If it isn't in the conference bylaws, it should be.

*Aside from the schedule itself, there is probably nothing factual in this post.
