Earlier this week, Penn State coach James Franklin announced that this year’s Blue-White game will be played on an offense/defense format and said that a scoring system was still being worked out.

The scoring system was revealed Friday, and it is as follows:

DEFENSE

  • Defensive touchdown— 7 points
  • Safety— 2 points
  • Fumble recovery— 2 points
  • Interception— 3 points
  • 3-and-out— 2 points
  • Sack— 2 points
  • Forced punt— 1 point

OFFENSE

  • Touchdown— 6 points
  • Extra point— 1 point
  • Field goal— 3 points

The offense will be wearing white, and the defense blue. Quarterbacks will wear a light-blue jersey, and the scrimmage will be played in eight sections, some of which will be full contact and others not.

This year’s Blue-White game is scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
