Football spring practice opener postponed

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The University of South Carolina football team has postponed the opening practice Tuesday for the spring session. The practice scheduled for 4:15 Tuesday was postponed because of inclement weather.  A make up date has not been scheduled.

The Gamecocks spring session concludes with the annual Garnet & Black Spring Game on Saturday, April 12. The Garnet & Black Spring Game will begin at Noon at Williams-Brice Stadium. Admission is free. The contest will be broadcast live on ESPNU.

More details on the events surrounding the spring game will be announced at a later date.

All 15 of the spring practice sessions are open to the public unless determined otherwise. Most afternoon practices will be at the Bluff Road practice fields beginning at 4:15. Saturday scrimmages will be at Williams-Brice Stadium beginning at 10 a.m. All dates and times are subject to change.

Guests with cameras will be permitted to shoot the first 30 minutes of each practice only. After that, no still or video photography will be allowed during the practice sessions without prior consent from the Athletics Media Relations department.

Players will not be available for autographs before, during or after the practice sessions. In addition, pets are not permitted on the practice fields. All fans and media attending the practice sessions must stay behind the yellow rope.

The annual Pro Timing Day is Wednesday, April 2, beginning at 10 a.m. The skills conducted on the Williams-Brice Stadium field will be open to the public. Should inclement weather arise, the event would move to the indoor practice facility and would be closed to the public.

South Carolina is coming off three-straight 11-win seasons and top-10 finishes for the first time in school history. Under 10th-year head coach Steve Spurrier, the Gamecocks finished the 2013 season ranked fourth in both the Associated Press poll and USA Today/Coaches poll, their highest finish ever.
