2013 Oregon spring football game TV schedule set

USA TODAY Sports

Oregon will hold its spring game April 27, giving fans their first chance to see how the No. 2 team in 2012 will look going into 2013.

A first glimpse of Oregon's 2013 squad will come on April 27, as the school has announced the dates and TV schedule for their spring game.

The exhibition will be held on the 27th, at 11 a.m. PT. It will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network.

The game, held at Autzen Stadium, has grown in popularity along with the Ducks, who finished the year No. 2 in the nation after capping a 12-1 season with a Fiesta Bowl win. Two years ago, the game was broadcast live on ESPN2, and this past year, a record 44,129 fans showed up to watch a game where Marcus Mariota made it clear he was a likely potential starter. Chip Kelly keeps all practices closed except the Spring Game, which is a contest between two randomly divided teams -- last year, they were named "Mighty Oregon" and "Fighting Ducks," with Mariota's team romping over a squad led by Bryan Bennett.

The Ducks return the majority of their skill players from an offense that scored 49.6 points per game. They lose Kenjon Barner at running back, but that means that the extraordinarily versatile De'Anthony Thomas -- now a junior -- finally has nobody ahead of him on the depth chart.
