PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It has been 12 years since the University of Maine football played a game in the city of Portland. That streak is coming to an end very soon.

On Saturday, May 6th, the UMaine football team will play its annual Jeff Cole Memorial spring scrimmage at Fitzpatrick Stadium. The scrimmage will begin at 4:00 PM.

The Black Bears will return to Fitzpatrick Stadium for a regular season conference showdown with Delaware on Saturday, November 4th. That game was originally scheduled to be played in Orono.
