Gameday Coverage: 2022 Blue-White Game

The Blue-White Game is finally back after a long three years. James Franklin will lead his team into its first public appearance since falling to No. 21 Arkansas in the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day.

As Franklin mentioned earlier this week, things will look a little bit different on the field due to a slightly tweaked format from what we usually see. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Penn State’s scrimmage.

Television

The game is set to kick off at 2 p.m. on the Big Ten Network. Rick Pizzo and Penn State letterman Matt Millen will be on the call, while former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin will provide updates from the sideline.

Radio

Penn State Sports Network — Steve Jones, Jack Hamm, and Brian Tripp
Local: 99.5 & 103.7 FM/1390 AM

Weather

Expect a chilly start to the day in Happy Valley with a chance of rain. According to AccuWeather, the temperature will build from 48 degrees when parking lots open at 9 a.m. to 56 degrees at kickoff, with a 51% chance of precipitation at noon. Expect winds of 9 mph throughout the game with gusts nearing 20 mph.

Last Meeting

Noah Cain found the end zone twice, as Sean Clifford threw for 118 yards and one touchdown when Blue defeated White 24-7 way back in 2019.

Format

The game will be a scrimmage format, offense (White) vs. defense (Blue), with quarterbacks wearing light blue. Scoring for the scrimmage is as follows:

  • Defense
    • 7 points for a defensive touchdown
    • 2 points for a safety
    • 3 points for a fumble recovery
    • 3 points for an interception
    • 2 points for a 3 & out
    • 2 points for a sack
    • 1 point for forcing a punt
  • Offense
    • 6 points for a touchdown
    • 1 point for an extra point
    • 3 points for a field goal

Injuries/Suspensions

Defensive end Zuriah Fisher is reportedly out for the 2022 season after suffering an undisclosed injury. PJ Mustipher will also miss the game even though Franklin mentioned his rehab is ahead of schedule.
