Penn State is planning a Blue-White Game for 2021...kind of. While they are not branding it as such, the final spring practice will serve as a scrimmage in Beaver Stadium on Saturday, April 17.

While the event will not be open to the public, there will be fans in the stands. Attendance will be limited to University Park first-year students, the families and guests of student-athletes, coaches and staff. All those in attendance will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing. Penn State is planning virtual events for the scrimmage for the general public, with details being shared in the near future.

In case you were wondering, the parking lots will be closed off and no tailgating will be permitted.

Penn State did not hold a Blue-White Game, or spring practice for that matter, in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic was still in its early days in the U.S. There was no information regarding how to view the scrimmage, but details regarding television and/or streaming availability seem likely to be released soon. A kickoff time is also yet to be announced.
