The Blue (the defense) routed the White (the offense) 67-47 in a unique scoring system for Penn State’s annual spring game.
Each team receives points for touchdowns, turnovers, big gains and big plays, such as sacks and tackles for loss.
The defense registered nine sacks, two each by tackle Austin Johnson, end Brad Bars and end Evan Schwan. It had three other tackles for loss and interceptions by walk-ons Jesse Merise and Jonathan Zuk.
“We have guys who can rush the passer,” defensive coordinator John Butler said. “We feel pretty good about that. That’s the most important element of playing good pass defense.”
The defense played well, despite many first-teamers seeing little or no action.
