2012 Texas, LSU Spring Football Games Lead Beginning Of Scrimmage Season

Spring game season truly gets underway this weekend, with two of the country's biggest outfits holding public to-dos. A handful of teams have already wrapped up their spring camps, but April-ish is when the totally pointless magic really shines.

The Texas Longhorns are in business on April 1 at 3 p.m. ET, live on the Longhorn Network. The LSU Tigers may actually get more extensive television coverage for their March 31 (1:30 p.m. ET) scrimmage even though it's not going to be broadcast on TV. Les Miles' squad will also celebrate their 2011 SEC title, perhaps the most forgotten SEC title ever.

Cross-border recruiting intrigue is also in play:

The rest of the weekend's spring festivities schedule (none of these games are televised nationally, so check your radio listings*):

March 31: Duke Blue Devils, LSU, Memphis Tigers, Texas State, UL-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns

April 1: Texas

Elsewhere, the BYU Cougars have an interesting model going: they held their spring game a week before their practices end, letting them use their public scrimmage as a trial run, rather than as a presentation.

* I don't know if there are radio listings.
