KNOXVILLE — Tennessee will have a later kickoff time than usual for its spring football game, school officials said Tuesday.

The Vols’ annual Orange and White Game will kick off at 6 p.m. on at April 13. Tennessee starts spring practice on March 7.

Tennessee athletic department spokesman Zach Stipe said this will be the latest kickoff time for UT’s spring football game since 1998, when it started at 7 p.m.

Admission to the game is free. Gates open at 4:30 p.m.

In their first season under coach Jeremy Pruitt, the Vols went 5-7 overall and 2-6 in the Southeastern Conference.

The Orange and White Game will cap a full day of athletic events on April 13.

The UT track team will have the final day of the Tennessee Relays that morning.  The softball team hosts Mississippi State at 1 p.m., and the baseball team hosts Georgia at 3 p.m.
