Florida fans — and the media — will have a chance to catch an early but brief glimpse of the Gators when they open spring football practice in less than a week.
Breaking from recent tradition, UF coach Will Muschamp will open two early practices to the public on March 15-16. The March 15 practice will take place from 4:35-6:35 p.m., while the March 16 practice will be held from 1:05-3 p.m. Both practices will be on the Sanders Football Practice Fields next to the O'Connell Center and McKethan Stadium.
The Gators will begin spring practice on March 13. The day before, UF will hold its annual Pro Scout Day, which will be open to the public, with gates 2, 6, 15 and 18 opening at about 10:30 a.m.
UF's spring concludes with the annual Orange & Blue Debut at 1 p.m. on April 6 in The Swamp.
Students, Gator Boosters, Alumni Association members and F Club members all receive free admission to the spring game. A limited supply of free tickets is also available at Florida Farm Bureau agents' offices.
Tickets are currently available for $5 in the Gator ticket office at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium or they can be ordered online at www.GatorZone.com/tickets.
