Each and every year, spring football games occur throughout the country giving fans, players, coaches and everybody associated with a program a better look at what the team actually looks like heading into the season ahead.
These games, again, obviously occur in the spring. However, there’s something different about the spring this year as opposed to others.
Yes, we’re talking about coronavirus. With that, certain teams have already announced their spring games as being called off.

On Thursday night, Penn State did exactly that:
According to gopsusports.com, “In addition to the Big Ten’s announcement today, Penn State Athletics is suspending athletically-related activities indefinitely. This will include the cancellation of the annual Blue-White game.”
The Blue-White game was designated to take place on Saturday, April 18. That is still over a month away.
However, this is the world we are living in right now. Sporting events are being canceled left and right and we don’t know when it will stop.
To get ahead of the storm, Penn State has canceled its spring game. The first time the public may see the Nittany Lions’ 2020 football team may be on Saturday, Sept. 5 when they host Kent State.
At least, we hope.
