Fans under 18 years of age and Virginia Tech students with ID will be admitted free to the spring game. Parking is free to the public. Regular-season parking lots will be used on a first-come, first-serve basis. Those lots will open at 8 a.m., on game day.

Fans can also keep track of the game on their computers, as live stats will be available throughout the game.

DuBose was a freshman center on the Virginia Tech women's team last year who was stricken with a rare brain and spinal cord bacterial infection, meningococcal meningitis. The fund was established to help defray some of the medical expenses.
