Posted: Updated:

The University of Tulsa Head Football Coach Bill Blankenship has announced spring practice dates for the Golden Hurricane football team. Tulsa, which finished the 2011 campaign with an overall 8-5 record and a 7-1 Conference USA mark, returns 13 starters in 2012, including seven on defense and six on offense.
 
Tulsa will begin 2012 spring drills with seven practice sessions before spring break and eight of the allowed 15 days of spring practice following the week break. The Hurricane will take the field on Tuesday, March 6 for the first time this spring.  Tulsa's practice sessions will normally take place Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays during the spring, but one Wednesday practice is scheduled before spring break. Tulsa's final practice before spring break will be on Thursday, March 15. 
 
After spring break, Tulsa returns to the practice field on Tuesday, March 27 for the first of the final eight practice sessions of the spring season. Practices are closed.
 
The Hurricane will look to replace some key areas on offense, including at quarterback with the graduation of G.J. Kinne, offensive line with the loss of three senior starters and tight end. Tulsa returns six starters to the offensive unit.
 
Defensively, Tulsa returns seven starters to the lineup. The key areas that Tulsa will need to replace is at linebacker with the loss of leading tackler Curnelius Arnick and Tyrunn Walker's slot at defensive end.
 
The spring will culminate with the Annual Spring Game on Saturday, April 7 at H.A. Chapman Stadium. Game time for the spring game is TBA.
