It's going to be very busy in Ann Arbor this evening and a big night for U of M football fans.

The 2016 Michigan Spring Football Game takes place this evening at 6 PM at Michigan Stadium.   The game is being played earlier than usual this year, just over a month since the Wolverines began spring practice in Florida.  

This is the first time the U of M Spring game has been played in the evening hours, giving it that "Friday nights" feel, according to coach Jim Harbaugh.

The stadium doors will open at 5 PM, an hour before start time, and is free.  Local parking lots will be opening at 4 PM and some stadium concession stands will be offering food for sale.
