Baylor Football Readies For Green & Gold Spring Game

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor Football will hold its Green & Gold Spring Game presented by Jim Turner Chevrolet, Saturday, April 22, at McLane Stadium. The game is free and open to the public with kickoff scheduled for noon.

Baylor’s squad will be divided into two teams for the day and face off to conclude its 15 dates of spring practice for 2017.

For the game, Baylor Football has partnered with Pack of Hope, a non-profit organization that aims to erase hunger in McLennan County.  Fans attending the game are asked to support Pack of Hope by bringing one of five non-perishable items to the game to help fill backpacks for local children:  Bumble Bee Tuna Salad, Chef Boyardee Spaghetti & Meatballs, Dole Mixed Fruit, Nestle 8oz Bottled Water, Tropicana or Minutemaid Juice.
Free, public parking in lots 2 and 3 at McLane Stadium will be available starting at 8:30 a.m. Shuttles will also run from the Ferrell Center to Grant Teaff Plaza at 8:30 a.m.

Prior to the game, the Touchdown Alley Fan Fest will be located on the South Plaza outside McLane Stadium’s Gate D and open at 9:30 a.m. Stadium gates C and D will open for public entrance at 11 a.m. with all general admission seating located on the east side of the stadium in the 100 level.

Baylor track and field will be hosting the Michael Johnson Invitational on the same day at Clyde Hart Track and Field Stadium. Due to track events, the tailgating area outside McLane Stadium will not be available for use. Tailgating will be allowed behind vehicles in the parking lots, if there is no obstruction of drive lanes.

The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports Southwest and streamed online on FOX Sports Go.

Baylor finished the 2016 season as Motel 6 Cactus Bowl champions (31-12 win over Boise State), its school-record seventh straight bowl appearance.

The Bears signed a top-35 ranked recruiting class in February and will open the 2017 season on Sept. 2 at McLane Stadium (vs. Liberty).
