TCU football opens up Friday practice to public. Here’s what you need to know

The TCU football team won’t have a traditional spring game this year. But coach Gary Patterson announced that the program is opening up the final spring practice Friday to the public.

“We will have some controlled good on good situations,” Patterson wrote on his Twitter account. “Come join us!”

The practice is scheduled for 5 p.m. at Amon G. Carter Stadium.

Due to construction on the east side expansion project, only the west side of the stadium will be open for seating. Entrances will be at Gates 1 and 10. Photos and/or video during the practice is prohibited.

Patterson announced earlier this week that the spring game would not happen. TCU has had limited numbers this spring because of injuries. Almost half of what will be next season’s 85-man scholarship roster did not go through because of injuries, or since they won’t arrive on campus until the summer.

TCU opens the 2019 season on Aug. 31 against Arkansas Pine-Bluff.
