That headline sounds like the start to a decent April Fools post, but it's very real. Fresh off the electronic presses from Jeff Nelson:

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa., April 19, 2012 – The Blue-White Game presented by AAA will pit the Penn State offense vs. the defense and feature a new scoring system under head coach Bill O’Brien.
