TAMPA - The University of South Florida's spring football game, set for next Saturday at 4 p.m., has shifted from Raymond James Stadium to the on-campus Corbett Stadium. There is free admission and bleacher seating for 1,000 fans, plus additional room on the grassy berms surrounding the field.
"We thought it would be fun to play the spring game on campus," USF athletic director Mark Harlan said in a statement. "We have a beautiful soccer venue in Corbett Stadium, and our fans and students will enjoy seeing our team in that setting."
There will be a free student tailgate with games, free food (with valid USF student ID) and T-shirts for the first 500 students.
Former USF quarterback B.J. Daniels, a member of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, will hold a free football camp for students in grades 1-8 at the Morsani Football Practice Complex fields, running from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration will begin at 10 a.m. in the Lee Roy Selmon Athletics Center.
Daniels will be joined by other former USF players, such as Kayvon Webster, Sam Barrington and Terrell McClain.
At halftime of the spring game, several former USF players will compete in a flag football game.
