With the onset of spring in Happy Valley, it only means one thing for the Penn State football team.

Spring practice is on the horizon, and more specifically, the Blue and White game.

This Penn State tradition is set to kick off on Friday, April 19 with a carnival, fireworks and an autograph session.

The actual spring game is scheduled to begin at noon in Beaver Stadium on Saturday, April 20.

Penn State’s spring game will be the first time fans get to see the new quarterback battle between Tyler Ferguson and Steven Bench.

Fans will also see which young players will be getting opportunities to play more.

Players that redshirtedlike Eugene Lewis, Penn State’s top recruit in 2012will get to showcase their skills.

Also, fans will get to see new freshmen who enrolled early, such as Adam Breneman, suiting up for the first time at Beaver Stadium.

Along with the quarterback battle, the competition to fill the spots left by seniors Gerald Hodges and Michael Mauti will be something to look at during this game.

Although Mike Hull will most likely take one outside linebacker spot, the second spot is currently up in the air.

The Blue and White game is the culmination of the spring drills for the Nittany Lions.

Penn State will begin spring practice March 18 and end with the inter-squad scrimmage.

The Big Ten Network will be covering the game.
