Michigan Football's 2016 spring game has been set for April 1, according to U-M Athletics.

Kickoff time has not been set, but the Wolverines will be doing it a bit differently with a Friday night game. Traditionally, it has been held on a Saturday afternoon.

The spring game will be free and open to the public.

Here is the full release from U-M:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan football team will host its annual Spring Football Game presented by PNC Bank on the evening of Friday, April 1, from Michigan Stadium. The exact start time will be announced at a later date.

The spring game is free and open to the public.

The gates to the Big House will open one hour prior to the start of the game. Additional information will be forthcoming regarding parking, stadium entry locations, concessions and other activities for April 1.

The Wolverines will practice a total of 15 times during the spring, culminating with the first-ever spring game scrimmage in the evening. The game will be televised by the Big Ten Network.

The football team will conduct its first spring practice on Feb. 29 in Bradenton, Florida.
