Penn State Football: Nittany Lions' Clash With Buckeyes Set For 8 PM Kick
Get your popcorn ready, Penn State and Ohio State are set to face off under the lights this fall.
For the second straight season Penn State will play both Michigan and Ohio State in prime time -- the Oct. 25 meeting against the Buckeyes taking place at Beaver Stadium.
The Big Ten East Division clash between Penn State and Ohio State will kick at 8 p.m. and air on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. The Nittany Lions and Buckeyes will be meeting in prime time for the sixth time in the past 10 seasons (2005, '07, '08, '12, '13, '14).
For Penn State fans it will mark a memorable five game stretch that will feature four games at Beaver Stadium. The only road contest over that span will take place in Ann Arbor -- Michigan's first ever Big Ten night game. That Oct. 11 contest is set for a 7 p.m. kickoff and will air on ESPN or ESPN2.
Penn State will then have a bye week to prepare for the Buckeyes and the first Big Ten meeting between head coaches Urban Meyer and James Franklin.
Penn State will be playing at least one regular season night game for the 15th consecutive season. A determination on which network will nationally televise the Michigan and Ohio State clashes may not be made until six days before each contest. Additional Nittany Lion kick times will be announced later this spring.
The Nittany Lions are 13-16 All-Time against the Buckeyes. Penn State's most recent win was a 20-14 victory in 2011.
