LSU tweaks spring practice schedule

LSU has updated is spring football practice schedule at the front end and, as coach Les Miles would say, at the back end.

Spring practice will now begin Thursday, March 1 instead of Tuesday, Feb. 28 as first announced. The Tigers will now have a spring practice session on March 2 which was not previously scheduled.

LSU has also moved up the start of the Spring Game a half hour to 12:30 p.m., though it will still be played on Saturday, March 31. Coincidentally, that’s the same date as the national semifinals at the Final Four in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Other dates of interest: LSU will hold its annual pro timing day at 11 a.m. March 19 and its annual football coaches’ clinic March 22-24.

A complete list of spring practice dates is as follows:

  • Week 1: March 1, 2, 3
  • Week 2: March 6, 8, 10
  • Week 3: March 13, 15, 17
  • Week 4: March 20, 22, 24
  • Week 5: March 27, 29, 31
