2011 NCAA Football Spring Games, Practice: Cal, Stanford, San Jose State

While the NFL continues its march towards a potential lockout in two weeks, NCAA Football is ready to make its return on the heels of a strong recruiting period. The first step towards the 2012 BCS National Championship Game starts in the coming weeks and months with spring practices and spring games. Just about every university conducts some sort of spring practice and spring game, with some being more successful in drawing huge crowds. Last year Alabama drew over 90,000 fans to their annual Crimson and White game.

This year, all three Bay Area college football teams will be conducting spring practice, but Cal will not be hosting a spring game. None of the schools have conflicting times with the other schools, so in reality you could check out spring practice at all three sites. These dates are a bit tentative as things have already changed once for Cal. I've posted a tentative schedule for the Pac-12. If you notice a mistake or a change after I post this, please post a comment and I'll update the dates.
