Penn State and Michigan State Set for Mid-Afternoon Kick

by on October 14, 2019 1:00 PM

No. 7 Penn State football’s Oct. 26 road game against Michigan State will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and be broadcast on ABC.

The Nittany Lions will travel to East Lansing after this weekend’s White Out game against No. 16 Michigan. James Franklin’s program has lost its last two meetings against the Spartans by a combined seven points after blowing them out to clinch the Big Ten East division in 2016. The Spartans scored a touchdown with less than two minutes to play to win 21-17 last season after kicking a buzzer-beating field goal against the Nittany Lions in 2017.

Both of those losses against Michigan State came off the back of a one-point defeat at the hands of Ohio State. That won’t be a concern this year, though, as Penn State doesn’t play Ohio State until the second-to-last week of the regular season. The Nittany Lions have not won at Spartan Stadium since 2009 — the year Joe Paterno’s squad blew out Michigan State to finish the regular season with a 10-2 record.

The Penn State-Michigan State game will be the third consecutive game in which the Nittany Lions are featured on ABC. James Franklin’s team picked up a 17-12 win at Iowa in a game aired on the network, and Saturday’s White Out game against the Wolverines will kick off at 7:30 p.m. and be broadcast nationally on ABC.
