South Carolina announced Thursday it is moving the annual spring football game back a day to Sunday at 2 p.m. due to a forecast of heavy rain in the area on Saturday.

Approximately 15,000 fans will be allowed into Williams-Brice Stadium and the game will be broadcast on SEC Network Plus. Tickets are still available at

The university is also moving up the finale of a three-game baseball series with Arkansas from Saturday to Friday as part of a doubleheader with the first game at 2 p.m. and the second at 7 p.m.

"With the weather forecast looking rough for Saturday, we thought a spring game on Sunday with dry, clear weather would give our fans a better game day experience," USC coach Shane Beamer said. "Our players and coaches look forward to seeing a great crowd Sunday in Williams-Brice Stadium."

Fans who have purchased tickets for these events can use them for the new dates. For baseball, the Saturday game ticket will be used for the 2 p.m. Friday game. The Friday game ticket will be used for the 7 p.m. Friday game.

Parking around Williams-Brice Stadium is limited to the State Fairgrounds, Key Road Parking Lot and private lots around the stadium.

Fans desiring a refund on previously purchased spring football game tickets can contact the USC Athletics Ticket Office.

The weather forecast for Saturday calls for high percentage of rain and thunderstorms for most of the day. Sunday's forecast for the spring football game calls for sunny, partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the low 70s.
