Blue Team Triumphs In Messy Spring Game

On a wet and dreary day in Happy Valley, the Penn State football team attempted to fight Mother Nature and get it's annual Blue White scrimmage in at Beaver Stadium. The weather proved too much, however, as the game was stopped two minutes into the second half by heavy rain.

Blue team quarterback Matt McGloin, looking to earn the starting quarterback job come the fall, had a solid afternoon given the conditions, finishing with 109 yards on 5-10 passing. He led the game's only touchdown drive at the end of the second quarter, hitting Brandon Moseby-Felder in the near corner of the north endzone for a 17-yard score. Robert Bolden, the team's other starting quarterback candidate, had a rough day finishing 0-5 with an interception.

Moseby-Felder took advantage of his playing time to finish as the leading receiver with 31 yards on two catches. He also found himself targeted by the quarterbacks on a couple of incompletions as well, adding to what was an already impressive performance in the rain.

Brandon Beachum and Silas Redd tied for a game-high 24 yards rushing. Beachum was more efficient, however, reaching his number in only six carries compared to Redd's nine.

Overall, there was little to take away from this one. It was just too messy and the gameplans were to vanilla for the final stats to mean much of anything. Nevertheless, it was nice to see some of the guys including Beachum, McGoin and Moseby-Felder fight through the weather to have solid halves games.
