STATE COLLEGE - Penn State's police chief says his department is carefully evaluating plans for Saturday's spring football game, and will improve security where needed.

Chief Tyrone Parham on Tuesday didn't divulge specific security measures related to the Blue-White intrasquad scrimmage at Beaver Stadium that culminates Penn State spring practice.

Tougher security measures are expected at upcoming major sporting events around the country following the explosions Monday at the Boston Marathon.

About 60,000 people attended last year's Blue-White game. The school is also hosting the NCAA men's gymnastics championship Friday through Sunday.

Parham says the school is evaluating all events scheduled for the weekend. He says generally the public should be aware of its surroundings and to contact police right away if they see anything suspicious.
