Saturday afternoon, the James Franklin era will officially get underway in Happy Valley as he and the rest of the Penn State Nittany Lions will hit the field for their annual spring game.
After the departure of Bill O’Brien back to the NFL, Penn State was able to lure Franklin away from Vanderbilt and the SEC to come back home and run his beloved Nittany Lions.
The big thing to look for this season, aside from how well Franklin and the new staff performs, is the progression of sophomore quarterback, Christian Hackenberg. The youngster had a tremendous freshman season, and has given the folks in State College a lot of high hopes that he can be one of the best to ever come out of the program at the position.
Here’s how you can watch all the action live on Saturday:
