Beautiful weather and a chance to see the post-Saquon Barkley era begin led to massive turnout at Beaver Stadium for Saturday's Blue-White Game. The Blue squad beat the White 21-10 on the strength of Mac Hippenhammer's two-touchdown performance. 71,000 fans filled the stands in State College, good for the fourth-largest crowd in the 2018 slate of spring games across college football. 

The Nittany Lions ended up with the second-highest spring attendance in the Big Ten, trailing only Nebraska. The Huskers topped the list with nearly 87,000 fans packing Memorial Stadium to see defending national championship coach Scott Frost make his return to alma mater. Last year's College Football Playoff participants Georgia and Alabama were the only other schools to outdraw Penn State.
