This does not mean that you should invite your enemies over for sleepovers, but it does mean paying close enough attention that your enemy cannot gain the upper hand on you in battle.
The battles on the gridiron are fierce, and information about the enemy is scarce. Spring games are one of the few places one can gain valuable information about the opponent before the season kicks off.
These five games stand above the rest as rare opportunities for fans to gain insight into the opponent's tactics before the 2012 season gets underway. (LSU has already played its spring game, so that's why it's not on the list.)
(Also, if you're looking for something to do to make the day more special, put out a normal college football game day spread for the spring games on Saturday, Apr 14. I highly suggest some buffalo wings, seven-layer dip or chili cheese fries to make the day more authentic.)

*I will update this article with links to watch the spring games online as the links show up. (Especially in the case of the two games not slated for TV.)
