LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas head football coach David Beaty previously announced the Kansas Spring Football game would be played on Saturday, April 25 and on Wednesday the full schedule of spring football dates was released, highlighted by the 1 p.m., kickoff of the annual game which will be held in Memorial Stadium.

Per NCAA rules, KU will hold 15 practices during the spring season. As a safety precaution, in two of the practice sessions players will be limited to helmets only. Additionally, in a third session players are only allowed to dress out in helmets and shoulder pads, as they are required to go through an acclimatization period. The remaining 12 practice sessions players are able to wear full pads and participate in live contact drills for a portion of practice.
Other spring dates announced are: Kansas Football Coaches Clinic (Friday/Saturday, March 6-7) and the fourth annual Train Like a Jayhawk Kid’s Clinic (Saturday, April 25).
