Penn State Football: Blue White Game Set for April 20, Noon Kick
Penn State fans will get their first glimpse at Bill O'Brien and the Nittany Lions on April 20, at 12:00 p.m. the University announced today.
As in previous years here will be no admission or parking fee for the Blue-White Game. Stadium parking lots will open at 8:00 a.m. and stadium Gates A, B, C and E will open for fans at 10:30 a.m. An autograph session will not be held prior to the Blue White game but will likely be hosted sometime in the summer.
The Nittany Lions faithful will get their first look at multiple quarterbacks as Penn State looks to replace Matt McGloin under center. Unfortunately for those hoping to watch recent Penn State signee Christian Hackenberg, the Fork Union gunslinger won't be in Happy Valley until summer practices begin, well after the Blue-White game.
The 2012 game drew an estimated 60,000 fans, the nation's third-highest spring football game attendance. The Blue-White Game attracted record-breaking crowds in excess of 70,000 from 2007-09, topped by 76,500 at the 2009 contest.
Penn State will look to improve on an 8-4 record in 2012, 2013 marks the program's second year under NCAA sanctions, the first with significant scholarship restrictions.
