Everyone from Happy Valley is well aware of the Blue-White Game tradition that serves as the University’s unofficial spring reunion. This year’s game is especially important since it is James Franklin’s debut as the new head coach for the Nittany Lions. Plus, since attendance and parking is completely free AND the forecast for Saturday is 68 degrees and sunny, we wouldn’t be surprised if attendance this year breaks the 70,000 number, making this one of the most attended spring football games in the nation.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the weekend’s biggest events:
