SPRINGFIELD – In anticipation of potential winter weather on Thursday, the Missouri State football Bears will begin spring drills a day earlier than expected. Coach Terry Allen’s squad will conduct the first of 15 spring practice sessions Wednesday (March 20) at 3:30 p.m., at Plaster Field.

 Allen and select players will be available prior to Wednesday’s practice for interviews with the media.

 As part of their spring slate, the Bears will conduct three Saturday scrimmages: April 6, April 13, and the annual Maroon and White Game on April 20.  The club’s complete spring schedule (below) is subject to change due to weather and other factors.

 Beginning his eighth season at Missouri State, Allen expects 42 lettermen and 75 total squad members back from last year’s club that won three of its last five contests to close out the season.
