Ah, spring. Baseball is back. Professional basketball has begun its six-month slog to crown a champion. The NFL is slowly beginning to wake from its slumber. And college football has begun its spring practices.

And that's what brings us together today: Florida State's annual Garnet & Gold Spring Game.

This is the glorified scrimmage that pits the FSU offense against the FSU defense. It's also one of the first chances of the year for die-hard Seminoles fans to get a good look at what the team has to work with once the season rolls around in the fall.

And you can watch the Florida State Spring Game from just about anywhere. Here's how.

Watch the ACC Network from anywhere with a VPN

If you're going to be out of the country for the FSU Spring Game, you may still be able to watch on the ACC Network with a little help from a VPN.

That's a Virtual Private Network, if you've never used one before. And it's a way of tunneling your network traffic through a specific set of servers which (among other things) lets you route it through specific countries. So even if you're not physically in the United States, your network traffic can be, effectively making it look as if you're in the United States, — at least as far as the ACC Network is concerned.

So if you want to be able to watch the ACC Network from anywhere, that might be the way you want to go.
