Every year, Tennessee invites its fans to come see an early version of the football team at the Orange & White spring game. The university announced Friday that this year’s game will take place in Neyland Stadium on April 16th at 2 pm.
The Orange & White game has had huge turnouts during Butch Jones’ tenure in Knoxville. 63,016 fans attended in 2015, 68,548 in 2014, and 61,076 in 2013. The 2014 and 2015 crowds were the second and third largest turnouts ever for UT’s spring game.
The school also announced that spring practice will begin March 7th and consist of 15 practice sessions that will end with the Orange and White game on April 16th. Spring practices are generally open to media only, but in some recent years, the team has had at least one practice where students or fans could come and watch the Vols’ preparation.
