The annual Blue-White spring game drew a near-record crowd on Saturday afternoon as the Nittany Lions split in half and played themselves. The Blue team, made up primarily of first and second-stringers came away with a dominant win despite a slow start, posting a 37-0 victory in what looked to be a defense-heavy affair in the early going.

Good afternoon from sunny and warm State College, Pennsylvania where the Nittany Lions are set to take on, well, themselves in the annual Blue-White spring football game! James Franklin will be taking the Beaver Stadium sideline for the first time as Penn State's head coach and the teams will feature a mix of familiar faces and early enrollee newcomers.

As is the case in just about any election, from national to student government, there are bound to be a few interesting write-in votes once the ballots are tallied. In last week’s UPUA election, which officially elected Penn State’s Ninth Assembly of undergraduate representatives, plenty of amusing write-in votes were, well, written in.

Today’s preview highlights a position that Penn State football has become synonymous with, although the days of Linebacker U may be in the past as the Nittany Lions turned to a more offense-based approach.

The Eighth Assembly of the University Park Undergraduate Association officially adjourned at 10:47 p.m. last night following an emotional final assembly meeting.

With the Blue-White game coming up in just three short weeks, we are breaking down each position to see where the units stand going into the game. Here’s a look at the defensive back position, a unit that could use some improvement if the Nittany Lions want to become more competitive in the coming season.

The UPUA Election season hit the ground running last night as the three presidential tickets had their first debate, although its somewhat generous to call Tuesday’s events a debate.

The Penn State men’s basketball season isn’t over just yet. It might not have been what the squad set out for at the beginning of the season, but Penn State earned and accepted an invitation to play in the College Basketball Invitational.

Another week at Penn State means another week of the strong wheels of student government in action. With one last meeting before spring break, UPUA had a packed agenda last night as three pieces of legislation hit the floor and a new Chief Justice was up for vote.

The Lady Lions won their third straight conference championship two days ago; now, the individual Big Ten accolades and honors are following suit. Maggie Lucas, Dara Taylor, and head coach Coquese Washington all earned top conference awards following yet another very strong regular season for Penn State's women's basketball squad.

In the wake of State Patty’s Day weekend, the UPUA assembly held a relatively tame weekly meeting last night. While the deteriorating holiday was on the night’s agenda, the most noteworthy part of the meeting may have came at the start as new executive vice president and provost Nicholas Jones addressed the assembly.

Pizza Heaven is now open again at 301 Science Park Road, which is unfortunately a hike and a haul from campus and nowhere near as convenient as the previous location on North Atherton.

While this isn't a foolproof formula, typically a failure to pick up defensive rebounds will lead to a loss. That was the case on Thursday night as No. 9 Michigan State dominated the glass with a 42-29 rebound advantage en route to a 82-67 win over the Nittany Lions.

While most major college football programs could be seen tightly packed around conference tables with serious looks on their faces during today's signing day events, Franklin & Co. let the media into a room with a giant recruiting big board, an omelet station, and a whole lot of modern technology.

Tuscaloosa Academy - Lee-Scott Academy
Penn State seems to have rounded out its 2014 recruiting class on National Signing Day with a commit from Alabama athlete Torrence Brown, according to Rivals' Ryan Snyder. The Tuscaloosa Academy product had originally committed to Southern Miss in January before receiving interest from the Nittany Lions, likely following the Lloyd Tubman's decision to pull back his commitment.
