COLLEGE FOOTBALL: APR 16 Georgia Spring Game
USATSI

Spring games are right around the corner, and these scrimmages will give college football fans a first glimpse at what will be a completely different landscape. Waves of change will be implemented during the 2024 season: The College Football Playoff is expanding to 12 teams with a new auto-bid structure surrounding conference champions, the Pac-12 is operating with just two teams and the remaining power conferences — the SEC, Big Ten, ACC and Big 12 — will each be introducing new members. 

More than 40 programs have officially announced dates and times for spring games, while each conference has placed the majority of television and streaming options to watch. As it stands, Alabama is the only team in the country to place its spring game on basic cable, but for good reason because it’ll be a fascinating one to watch. Following the retirement of legendary coach Nick Saban, Kalen DeBoer will lead his Crimson Tide squad onto the field for the first time on ESPN. 

The Big Ten’s spring games will air on Big Ten Network, while the Big 12, ACC and SEC will all show up on ESPN streaming. It should also be noted that the Pac-12’s dissolution does not go into effect until July, so the conference still stands at 12 member institutions throughout the spring. As such, Pac-12 spring games will be aired on the Pac-12 Network — potentially for the last time ever. 

You can view all the Power Four spring game dates and times below. For convenience, schools have been grouped into the conference in which they’ll be competing in the 2024 season. So, for example, USC and UCLA are included with the Big Ten schools.
