Spring Football on XM this Saturday

Geaux TigersAh yes, it's springtime. The flowers are sprouting, the birds are chirping, and sports fans are dreaming about... college football?

Yep. Spring football games are a big tradition for many college programs across the country.  The coach divides the football team into two teams for a scrimmage, and the hardcore fans turn out in droves to get a preview of the new team.

This Saturday, XM will carry the 2008 spring game for the defending national champion LSU Tigers, as well as the annual "G-Day Game" from the University of Georgia, on channel 199.

The Georgia spring game kicks off at 2pm ET/11am PT, and the LSU game starts at 6pm ET/3pm PT.

This month, XM will also air spring football games from Oklahoma State, Illinois, Penn State, Tennessee, and Arkansas. (The Texas Longhorns spring game aired last Saturday.)


Go Dawgs! A guaranteed win.So we got that going for us, which is nice.

I hope XM will play the Iowa Spring Game. " This is Gary Dolphin voice of the Hawkeyes. Haven't you ever wanted to give the Voice of the Hawkeyes a (BEEP!) " 1999 quote from a trip with the Iowa staff.

LSU will just be tuning up for the defense of the national title that should just stay in Baton Rouge.

Take the purple team -5.5 and go for the over.
