GRAMBLING — Grambling State University football fans will get a chance to get an early glimpse of the new look Tigers under first-year head coach Hue Jackson as GSU will hold the annual Black and Gold Spring Game on April 2 at Eddie G. Robinson Memorial Stadium.
The Black and Gold Spring Game will mark the end of spring football, which began on March 4.
GSU plans on treating the event like a traditional gameday, with tailgating, concessions and entertainment.

The spring game will feature a large returning roster from last season in addition to 16 transfers Grambling State has added this offseason.
