Vanderbilt scraps Spring Game in favor for Open Scrimmage

A previous scheduled spring game for March 31st has been taken off the books by Vanderbilt. The Commodores will instead have an open scrimmage almost a week earlier and will have the event open for the public.

Spring practice gets started in two weeks and everyone involved with Commodores football program is excited about getting things started. 

One of the biggest focal points by the fans about spring practice is the spring game itself. Well that will not take place this year as Vanderbilt will conduct an open scrimmage at 10 am central time on March 25th. 

Vanderbilt was previously expected to hold a spring game on March 31st, that would have taken place on a Friday night and aired on the SEC Network. Head coach Derek Mason and his team have performed three spring games thus far in his Vanderbilt career. 

Now the Commodores will conclude the spring activities a week earlier. Vanderbilt is expected to host a big recruiting weekend on the day of the 25th, so recruiting will take up a lot of responsibilities. 

Spring activities officially get started on Feb 27th. The Commodores open scrimmage will be a free event and open to the entire public. Autograph session will take place after the proceedings.
