Penn State took a unique approach to its spring practices and spring game this year. Limiting attendance to first-year students and family of players and coaches, no television coverage and a revised version of the Blue-White Game were the changes to this year’s event.

On Saturday, Penn State took the field in front of just over 7,500 fans, going through drills and hosting a scrimmage as the team begins the final stretch of spring ball. This weekend’s practice marked the 12th of the season for the Nittany Lions, and they’ll have three remaining.

After the event, head coach James Franklin spoke with the media to talk about the team’s practice. He talked about having fans in the stands, the quarterback situation, newcomers and plenty more with reporters.
