South Carolina’s annual Garnet & Black Spring Game is at noon Saturday. Here’s what you need to know.
Admission is free. The Williams-Brice Stadium gates will open at 10:30 a.m. Fans are asked to sit in the lower bowl on either the east or west side on a general admission basis. In addition, there are several upgrade opportunities, such as 50-yard line seating, available on the official South Carolina Gameday app or at GamecocksOnline.com/upgrades.
Parking will be available on a first-come, first served basis. The Key Road lot will open at 7:30 a.m. and is free to the public. Gamecock Park and the Fairgrounds lots (Gates 6 and 10) will open at 8 a.m., with spots available for $10 per vehicle.
Beginning at 11 a.m., more 100 former Gamecock lettermen will take part in a flag football game on the north end of Williams-Brice Stadium. The football alumni will be introduced at halftime, and will participate in an hour-long autograph session on the field following the game and the playing of the alma mater.
University of South Carolina students are invited to lead the team on the field for “2001.” Those students interested in participating should congregate by Gate 51 at the south end of the stadium prior to the game. The students will sprint across the field just prior to kick and then take their seats in the north stands.
The 2016 season poster will be available in Gamecock Village for free with a limit of five per person. Gamecock Village opens at 9:30 a.m. Lettermen will be selling the official spring game program for $5.
