The South Carolina football team revised its spring practice schedule, canceling Tuesday's practice and adding two practices to next week.

The team will not practice Tuesday as previously scheduled.

The Gamecocks will make up last Thursday's postponed practice on Wednesday, April 6. The makeup practice is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. at the Bluff Road practice fields. That will be the team's final practice prior to the annual Garnet & Black Spring Game, set for Saturday, April 9, at 1 p.m. in Williams-Brice Stadium.

The team will practice twice next week, working out both Tuesday, April 12, and Thursday, April 14, at 4 p.m.

Here is the updated practice schedule:

Wednesday, April 6 - 7 p.m.

Saturday, April 9 - 1 p.m. Spring Game

Tuesday, April 12 - 4 p.m.

Thursday, April 14 - 4 p.m.

All practices are open to the public. Saturday's spring game is free of charge and will be broadcast on ESPN3 with Bill Rosinski and Randy Shannon describing the action.
