2012 NCAA Spring Football Games

Posted by Dave On April - 4 - 2012

Alabama Spring gameWith the book finally closed on the 2012 NCAA basketball season, most sports fans and tailgaters are wondering where to turn their attention. College baseball is phenomenal choice and the tailgating there is always underrated. Major League Baseball’s regular season is about to get underway, NASCAR and NHRA are going strong and of course summer concerts are right around the corner.

But most everyone associates tailgating with football. The NFL hasn’t even held their annual draft yet so that leaves college football to fill the tailgating void. Welcome spring football practices and the annual spring scrimmages. Most major football programs have a spring game or at the very least a controlled scrimmage to end spring practice. The majority of those games are open to the public and many fans starved for some football treat them like a real game complete with a full day of tailgating.

In the interest of promoting tailgating and the tailgate party lifestyle, here is a complete list of schools and their scheduled dates for the Spring Game. Keep in mind some schools opened up spring practice early and have already held their annual spring game. (Army held theirs on March 9th…) The school’s and their spring game are listed by conference. Dust off the grill and go tailgate some college football in the next few weeks.
