Gameday Coverage: 2017 Blue-White Game

Penn State football is finally back after the long offseason. James Franklin leads his squad into the annual spring game, its first public game since falling to USC in the Rose Bowl. Split into two teams on Friday, the Nittany Lions hope to show some of its developments since the last time we saw them.

Here’s all the media and miscellaneous information you’ll need.

Television Coverage

Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. It will air live on BTN this year after getting tape delayed in 2016. Kevin Kugler will be on play-by-play duty, while Matt Millen is your color commentator, and Anthony Adams will report from the sidelines.


Penn State Sports Network — Steve Jones and Jack Ham. Local: 93.7 FM/1450 AM. Sirius: Ch. 132. XM: Ch. 196.


Expect a cloudy day and temperatures hovering around 59 degrees at kickoff, according to AccuWeather.

Last Time They Met

Trace McSorley finished with four touchdowns and 281 yards during his Beaver Stadium starting debut in a 37-0 rout for the Blue team over White.


John Reid may be out for the entirety of the 2017 season after suffering a knee injury in practice two weeks ago. Franklin also alluded to a few unnamed players with tweaks taking precaution and sitting out the spring game during media availability on Wednesday.
