Blue-White Game To Kick Off At 2 p.m., Will Not Be Televised

Get ready, Penn Staters.

If you want to get your first glimpse of the Trace McSorley-led 2016 Nittany Lion football team this spring, you’ll have to be in Beaver Stadium two hours earlier than last year. This year’s Blue-White Game will kick off at 2 p.m. on April 16, the school announced today.

More importantly, fans will have to be in the stadium in person to see the game as it will not be televised live — a departure from many previous seasons. Last season, the game was shown on Big Ten Network and featured Matt McGloin on the call as a color commentator. The game will be broadcast on the Penn State Sports Network and GoPSUSports.com.

Last year, the game kicked off at 4 p.m. and saw 68,000 people attend, good for third-most in the nation. It featured a kicking competition at halftime and a 17-7 Blue team win. Nick Scott ran for a 52-yard touchdown, and Christian Hackenberg was the game’s best quarterback, throwing for 180 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
