The Kansas football team will hold its spring game at Booth Memorial Stadium on April 9, the school announced Monday.

The game, which serves as the annual culmination of the spring practice season, will begin at 1 p.m. The university will also hold a surplus sale, live music and a kids' carnival before the game, with additional events to be determined in the coming weeks.

Admission to the game will be free and tickets are not required.

Kansas held its first of 15 spring practices early Monday and will hold three a week until the spring game, with the exception of when the university is on spring break from March 12-20.

It is the first spring for coach Lance Leipold, who was hired in April after the university parted ways with former coach Les Miles amid allegations of sexual harassment dating to his time at LSU.

The Jayhawks went 2-10 in Leipold's first season, but their performance was punctuated with a 57-56 overtime win at Texas on Nov. 13 — their first conference victory on the road since 2008.

Will there be more football news in the weeks leading up to the game?

Are all the transfers on campus?

Any PWOs? Is there a summary of those players or do we have to wait until August or when they make a game winning play?

Has there ever been interest in football during basketball season?

Plenty of football coming from Zac this spring and beyond... The first opportunity to chat with players & Leipold comes tomorrow. Parts of spring practices also open to the media (though not for very long).

Zac's also been working on other football stories that you'll enjoy. He's still meeting people and getting a feel for the beat and the program, but he's working his butt off and you'll enjoy his coverage.

Absolutely there is interest here in football during basketball season. In this household we are avid fans of both teams.

Will the Spring Game be televised? Maybe ESPN+? Those of us on the west coast can't be there live so I really hope it is televised again. Last season it was on espn+, if i recall.
