Prior to the scrimmage, fans are welcomed to tailgate behind their cars in the parking lot or on the north side of the lagoon just outside McLane Stadium. On the South Plaza starting at 4 p.m., there will be 2016 Baylor football schedule posters available, along with face painting, inflatables and a photo opportunity with the Russell Athletic Bowl trophy.

BU is in the midst of a spring practice schedule that began Feb. 25 and will conclude after 15 practices on April 5. 

Head coach Art Briles opens his ninth season at Baylor in 2016 with a roster made up of 11 returning starters and 48 returning lettermen. Baylor finished the 2015 season ranked 13th nationally and as Russell Athletic Bowl champions (49-38 win over No. 10 North Carolina), its school-record sixth straight bowl appearance. Under Briles, BU has won a Big 12-best 50 games over the last five seasons, including two conference championships and three bowl wins.
