Just when you thought your Saturday nights were going to be free in the fall…
Big Ten Network announced its first three weeks worth of game coverage today, and the Nittany Lions will appear once on the network in that span, on Sept. 16 against Georgia State at Beaver Stadium.
The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m.
The Nittany Lions’ scheduled game times have come out in bits and pieces over the last few weeks, and it has been interesting, to say the least.
Few probably figured the Georgia State game would be a nighttime tilt, and it turns out to be the first night game officially announced (though, we can presume, the Oct. 21 game against Michigan at Beaver Stadium will likely be a later start at the very least since it has been announced as a White Out).
So far, Penn State officially has three noon starts (Sept. 2 vs. Akron; Oct. 7 at Northwestern; Nov. 11 vs. Rutgers), and two 3:30 p.m. contests (Sept. 9 vs. Pitt and Oct. 28 at Ohio State) on the slate.
The start times for games at Iowa, Michigan State and Maryland and home tilts vs. Indiana and Nebraska — in addition to Michigan — are still to be announced.
