This Saturday’s Blue-White game at Beaver Stadium won’t be a traditional scrimmage and instead will be broken up into “offense vs. defense,” Penn State coach James Franklin told reporters Wednesday.
Franklin said a specific scoring system for the game hasn’t yet been finalized, and that some periods will be full contact while others will be “thud” periods, which mean that no player will be able to hit the ground while being tackled. Franklin said that some players have been medically cleared for “thud” but not full contact.
Penn State is thin at a few areas, particularly on the offensive line, and Franklin said last week that he wants to make Blue-White as “game like as I possibly can.”
The Blue-White game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. Saturday.
