Penn State caps its spring football drills Saturday with the annual Blue-White Game at Beaver Stadium.

Do-everything running back Saquon Barkley is off to the NFL Draft, but the Nittany Lions, who finished No. 8 in the final Associated Press poll, return star quarterback Trace McSorley.

Here's everything you need to know about the Blue-White Game (kickoff is about 3 p.m.; admission is free):


Fans attending the game who did not have 2017 season tickets and a season parking permit will be charged $20 for parking (cash only). Lots open at 8 a.m. See details about parking and lot information here .


Gates open at 1:30 p.m., but players will be available for autographs from 12:15 p.m. to 1:05 p.m. at Gates A, B, C, E and F.


The players will be permitted to sign one item per person to give as many fans as possible an opportunity to meet the squad. A team poster will be available at the stadium gates, while supplies last, for the players to sign during the autograph session and for other fans attending the game. There will also be a blank page for autographs in the Blue-White Game program that will be sold outside and inside Beaver Stadium before the game. Regulation size footballs will be permitted in the stadium for the autograph session. The players will not be available for photographs prior to the game.

Stadium bag policy

One clear plastic, flat-seamed (not rectangular-bottomed), one-gallon plastic bag (no bigger than 11 inches by 11 inches) per person will be permitted. Backpacks are not permitted. Read the entire bag policy here .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
