For veterans like Michael Robinson and Alan Zemaitis, the scrimmage translates into a series or two of action before they head to the sideline to clown around with teammates and sign autographs for fans the rest of the afternoon.
For the redshirt freshmen, however, it marks their first opportunity to hit the Beaver Stadium turf under game-like conditions.
Such was the case for reserve linebacker Spencer Ridenhour Saturday. The 6-foot, 211-pounder saw extensive action for the victorious Blue squad, coming through with seven tackles, which tied for game-high honors.
Afterward, Ridenhour took a few minutes to talk with FOS about what it was like to play before 40,000-plus fans, where he expects to line up in the fall and more.
