 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - The hits return to Penn State on Saturday.
Coach Bill O'Brien has limited full contact during spring practice this year except for once a week. This week, that day comes Saturday, for the Blue-White intrasquad scrimmage to wrap up spring drills.
O'Brien has said he's focusing on giving the team mental reps without tackling to help keep players fresh for the fall.
NCAA sanctions have forced Penn State to reduce its scholarship roster size from 85 in 2012 to 65 by 2014. O'Brien said health is the top priority.
Physical tailback Zach Zwinak said Wednesday that he misses dishing out hits on would-be tacklers, though the 1,000-yard rusher is mostly sticking with his downhill running style. He's also picking up a few tips on shaking off defenders while avoiding contact.
