DULUTH — The Minnesota Duluth football team begins spring practice at 2:10 p.m. Monday at Malosky Stadium.

It might feel more like November than spring as Monday’s forecast calls for a high of only 26 degrees and a 10 mph wind before the weather is expected to warm later in the week.

The Bulldogs’ 15-game spring practice season culminates with their annual Maroon-White Spring Game at 5:30 p.m. April 22 at Malosky Stadium.

UMD is coming off a 9-3 season. The Bulldogs captured their 21st NSIC title and made their 12th NCAA Division II playoff appearance.
