Nittany Lions ready for 'one last hurrah' in Blue-White game
UNIVERSITY PARK -- With the grind of spring practice mostly in the rearview mirror, the Penn State Nittany Lions are looking forward to Saturday's Blue-White spring game at Beaver Stadium.
After Wednesday's practice James Franklin said most of the evaluation process will consist of the practices leading up to the exhibition.
"It's more about what they did over the 13 practices and the film we've been able to watch," Franklin said.
"I'll have all the coaches grade this just like a game, but the Blue-White game to be honest, it's about going in and it's one last hurrah for the fans."
Franklin has talked about drawing a large crowd Saturday.
WJAC-TV 6 Sports checked with the program Wednesday and confirmed the largest Blue-White crowd since the Nittany Lions joined the Big Ten Conference was in 2009, when 76,500 watched the game at Beaver Stadium.
Kickoff is set for 3 p.m.
