FIU football will host the annual Blue & Gold Spring Game Friday, March 30, at 7 p.m. at Alfonso Field at FIU Stadium. Admission to the game is free.
Panther Rage will be giving out t-shirts to the first 200 students. Following the Spring Game head on over to the FIU Baseball Stadium to watch the Panthers take on ULM at 8pm. Students who sign a pledge at the baseball game will receive an FIU civility shirt.
Due to traffic from the Fair, fans must park in Lot 7 and enter through Gate 1.
The 2012 football schedule promises another exciting and challenging season for the Panthers. Highlighted by two nationally-televised games, FIU will look to build on its success from last season as it faces three teams that made bowl appearances in 2011 (Louisville, Louisiana and Arkansas State).
On March 23, FIU began construction on the third phase of Alfonso Field at FIU Stadium. The third phase will close in the north side of the stadium and is expected to be completed by Sept. 1, 2012.
