Per MGoBlue release-


ANN ARBOR -- The 2013 Mott Spring Game presented by PNC Bank in partnership with Michigan Athletics will be held at Michigan Stadium on Saturday, April 13. The Spring Game is free to the public, and Team 134 is set to take the field at approximately 12:30 p.m. EDT.

The gates to the Big House will open at 10 a.m., as events will surround the football team's final spring practice. The fifth annual alumni flag football game is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m., while Michigan's men's lacrosse team will face Ohio State, set to begin at 3:30 p.m.

The football scrimmage will be streamed live on BTN2Go beginning at 1 p.m. ET and air on delay at 9 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network.

Meanwhile, Michigan Football and C.S. Mott Children's Hospital have teamed up once again. Since 2010, the Spring Game has raised nearly $1 million for the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.

Fans can make a donation of choice to the Mott Children's Hospital upon entering the gates of Michigan Stadium. Donations are accepted at any level but fans will receive giveaways for donating at the following levels, while supplies last:

$5 -- An authentic Spring Game jersey patch identical to those worn by the players during the 2013 Spring Game
$10 -- Spring Game cinch backpack
$20 -- Mott stadium bench seat cushion, approved for regular-season use
$250 -- Four (4) passes to a preseason football practice (tentatively scheduled for Aug. 24) 
$500 -- Brady Hoke autographed football AND four (4) passes to a preseason football practice (tentatively scheduled for Aug. 24)
$1,500 -- Pregame sideline pass for two (2)

Sucks the game won't be on TV. 

Really awesome that the past 3 Spring Games have raised nearly $1 million. Given the lower attendance due to weather.

I think it'll be replayed on BTN but it won't be played live. Iirc, ours and Ohio's are scheduled at the same time and since neither team would reschedule, they decided that neither would be aired live

"Spring Game jersey patch identical to those worn by the players during"... will we also be seeing some PNC Bank patches and/or advertisements?  Perhaps on the giant marquee outside the stadium that all of you assured me would never be used for advertising.  Well guess what folks...

that $250 preseason practice deal.  I know someone who did that last year, and he said it was way cool.  I assume these donations are tax deductible...anyone know for sure?
