AMHERST, Mass. - The annual UMass Football Spring Game will be held this Wednesday night at 7 PM under the lights at McGuirk Stadium. The Minutemen will officially close out their Spring Camp with the Maroon & White scrimmage giving fans a chance to glimpse the future under new head coach Mark Whipple and his staff.

Parking lots will open for tailgating at 5 PM and there will be an autograph session with the Minutemen prior to the game at 6:30 PM. Additionally, fans will be able to get photos with Sam The Minuteman, the UMass cheerleaders and there will be a t-shirt toss and contests to win prizes throughout the evening.
Game day parking for the Spring Game will be the following:
Tailgating will be permitted in those lots as well as on the Dallas Mall and along Stadium Drive, however, vehicles will not be allowed to park there.
There will also be Athletic Department representatives on hand with season ticket information and to discuss seating options at McGuirk for the upcoming season. The Minutemen will play three games back at McGuirk Stadium this year along with three games at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.
If you're traveling to campus, make a day of it with UMass Athletics. Coach Whipple will be a guest speaker at the Sports Luncheon, which begins at noon.
