The spring game, which had been and still is scheduled for Saturday, April 15, will wrap-up Penn State’s spring practices session, which will consist of 15 practices over six weeks.
The 2020 game was canceled due to COVID-19 and the 2021 team held a pair of practices open to students to close spring practice with COVID restrictions still in effect.
LB Dom DeLuca had two interceptions and was player of the game. He built on that game with a strong season and ultimately earned a scholarship.
Penn State will come into the 2023 season with heigh expectations following a highly successful 2022. The team finished this past season 11-2 with a win over Utah in the Rose Bowl Jan. 2. Penn State finished the year ranked No. 7 in the AP Poll, and is expected to be ranked in the top 10 of the preseason rankings as well. The team returns plenty of talent. Singleton, Allar and linebacker Abdul Carter will be back for their second seasons in Happy Valley. Older players, such as Olu Fashanu and Curtis Jacobs, are returning as well, and Penn State still has room to add to its roster through the transfer portal.
Of course, the Blue-White Game and its kickoff time ultimately doesn’t mean much of anything, as long as nobody gets hurt. The games that matter begin in September. Penn State is opening its 2023 season at Beaver Stadium Saturday, Sept. 2, against West Virginia. It will be the first time the two regional schools have met since 1991, and could be the start of a big year for Penn State.
