🔼 Toss The Pigskin. Football is back! That’s right, the Tigers are finally back in Death Valley tomorrow. The National L Club Spring Game will be taking place at 1:00pm. The event is free, general admission, and fans will receive a free poster and roster card when entering. You won’t want to miss this offense vs. defense scrimmage!

🔼 On The Road, Again. Baseball hits the road for a weekend series at Ole Miss tonight at 6:30. This match up has been heating up since Paul Skenes said he doesn’t expect the Ole Miss students to be celebrating many home runs. The defending national champs haven’t had the season they expected as they sit 3-12 in conference play. The Tigers have not dropped a conference series yet.
