PHILADELPHIA - It's almost football season again at the University of Pennsylvania. The Quakers begin their spring season with their first practice in preparation of the 2014 campaign on Sunday, March 2. The 16-time Ivy League champions will hold 12 practices, including the annual Red vs. Blue Spring Game on April 5.
Following the first three practices - all of which are scheduled to take place in the Dunning-Cohen Champions Air Structure - the Quakers will have a week off for the University's spring break. The Quakers resume the spring season on March 18 and will practice each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, weather permitting. The Red and Blue are scheduled to be in full pads at least six times during the five weeks of spring ball with the first such practice slated for March 18.
The annual Red vs. Blue Spring Game is set to begin at 4 p.m., concluding the 2013 spring football season on April 5.
Multiple rain dates have been scheduled to ensure that Penn gets in all 12 practices. A full practice schedule is below. All dates and times are subject to change.
