Franklin’s First Blue-White Game Set for April 12

Penn State football fans will get their first chance to see James Franklin’s team in action in the Blue-White Game on April 12, at 1:30 p.m, according to a release. The game will be played on the Penn State Sports Network.

Like in previous years, the game will be the keystone of a big weekend in Penn State sports. An autograph session will be held prior to the game, at a time to be announced next month.

The Penn State football gameday Fan Festival, complete with merchants and food vendors, will take place on Curtin Road as it does throughout the regular season. The following day, Sunday, the 5th Annual Paterno Family Beaver Stadium Run/Family Fun Walk will take place. The event is a benefit for the Pennsylvania Special Olympics.

The women’s tennis team will also host Purdue that weekend, the only other athletic team at home for 2014’s Blue-White Weekend.

Penn State’s Blue-White Game is consistently ranked in the top five national attendances for spring scrimmages. In 2012, the game yielded about 60,000 fans.

15 starters at 41 letterwinners return to the Nittany Lions squad for the highly anticipated 2014 campaign. The team, under Franklin, begins practice on March 17th. The practice will be open to the media, and we will have coverage for the football team’s first open practice since before the 2013 season.
