Boston College Football Jay McGillis Spring Game To Be Held April 5th

The annual spring game will return on Saturday April 5th.

For those of you who are dying to get your football fix, Boston College announced the Jay McGillis Annual Spring Game will be held Saturday April 5th at noon. BC press released the event today, and of course it sounds like a merry family event for all kids and adults. Last year the spring game was cancelled as Boston was in the grips of a major lock down after the Marathon bombing.

The following is the schedule of event:

Sat., April 5
9:00 a.m. - 11:45 a.m., Family Fun Day at Gate `E'
9:00 a.m. - 10:45 a.m., Kids Combine on Alumni Stadium Field
12:00 p.m. (noon), Spring Game / Scrimmage (Post-Game Autographed Session)
1:00 p.m., Softball vs Pittsburgh (DH - Shea Field)
1:30 p.m., Baseball vs North Carolina (Shea Field)

Kids Combine: Fans ages 14 and under are welcome to come out and "Train Like an Eagle" by participating in the Eagles Football Combine. Located on the turf of Alumni Stadium kids can test their skills in a variety of football related drills including the 40-yard dash, long jump and passing accuracy.

Family Fun Day: Fan Fest consists of a variety of activities for the family including music, inflatable games, face painting and more. Live performances and food and drink options will also be available.

So if you are looking for something cheap to do (admission is free), are dying to see the new look Eagles, and want to watch a convoluted scoring system that is nearly impossible to understand, check out the Spring Game! Honestly though, it's usually pretty funny, especially if the weather is nice, and gives you an excuse to visit Boston College. And don't you want to see what quarterbacks Darius Wade and Tyler Murphy can do?

On a side note the date is rather interesting, because from all accounts, I read that the Spring Game was going to be held two weeks later. No clue why BC changed the date, but clear out your calendar and get to it.  No word on whether you can park or tailgate on campus, I'm going to assume since it wasn't mentioned that at least tailgating would be a "NO".

Certainly there are going to be recruits at the event, let's show them what BC is all about. Go Eagles!
