NCAA Football: Michigan Spring Game Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan Athletics announced on Thursday afternoon that football’s open spring practice will take place on April 18 at 12 p.m. ET at the Big House, headlining a massive weekend for several Wolverines sports. The open practice, or “spring game” as some still call it, will be free admission.

Included in the weekend will also be the Men’s Gymnastics NCAA Championships, a softball series against Ohio State, the Big House 5K and more.

Michigan Football kicks off spring practice on March 17, just a few days after the pro day for NFL prospects on March 13. Storylines for this year’s spring practices include the quarterback battle between Dylan McCaffrey and Joe Milton, breaking in four new starters on the offensive line, changes on the defensive side of the ball and much more.

The Wolverines and their eight early enrollees from the 2020 recruiting class have already been hard at work since the new year during winter conditioning leading up to the start of spring practices.

Here is the full schedule of events set to take place on the weekend of April 17-19:

Friday, April 17 – Men’s Gymnastics Hosts NCAA Championship, 1 and 7 p.m.
