Tulane has moved up the date of its annual Spring Game from March 9 to 10:15 a.m. Saturday at Tad Gormley Stadium.

School spokesman Roger Dunaway said the change was made because of the large amount of events on campus on March 9.

Tulane will still have four practice sessions after Saturday. The practices conclude on March 9.
