Annual Red & White Spring Game Set for Saturday

FAIRFIELD, CT (April 25, 2013) - Fans will have the chance to get their first look at the 2013 Pioneers when the Sacred Heart football team hosts its annual Red & White Spring Game this Saturday, April 27th on Campus Field.  Admission is free for the game with kick-off scheduled for 11:00 am.
