It's been more than a quarter century since Rickey Foggie suited up for the Maroon and Gold, but Saturday he'll get the opportunity to show his stuff on the field at TCF Bank Stadium! He'll join former greats Tyrone Carter, Ben Utecht, Ron Johnson, Thomas Tapeh and many more. 

For the first time, Gopher Football will be hosting a flag football game with over 20 alumni players before the 2013 Spring Game on April 27, beginning at 10:45 a.m. at TCF Bank Stadium.

Gopher Radio Network voice Mike Grimm will be the on-field emcee for the contest and will interview several alumni during the game. The game will feature two, 20-minute halves and have a 5-minute halftime.

Following the alumni game (at approximately 11:30 a.m.,) there will be an alumni autograph session directly under the main video board on the West Plaza.

The 2013 Gopher Football spring game is set to get underway at 1 p.m. Admission is free for all 2013 Spring Game events; for more info, visit
