Penn State Football: Road Trip To Michigan Scheduled For Under The Lights In Ann Arbor
Penn State fans will get to see something for the first time in program history this season as the Nittany Lions will face Michigan in Ann Arbor under the lights.
The Nittany Lions' Oct. 11 Big Ten road opener at Michigan has been set for prime time in Ann Arbor for a 7:00 p.m. ET clash that will air on ESPN or ESPN2. The contest will be Michigan’s first Big Ten home night game and the third overall in Michigan Stadium history.
Both teams will play for the 18th time overall and the second consecutive year in prime time. Penn State has won the last four games against Michigan. The teams will be meeting in Michigan Stadium for the first time since 2009. The two traditional powers are Big Ten East Division rivals starting this season and will play annually.
Last season's meeting was about as memorable as games come with a last second catch by Allen Robinson to set up a game tying touchdown and what would be a triple overtime thriller won by Bill Belton's short run to secure a 43-40 victory.
The Michigan game is the Nittany Lions’ second announced kick time for the upcoming season. Penn State’s Aug. 30 season opener vs. UCF in the Croke Park Classic will begin at 1:30 p.m. in Dublin; 8:30 a.m. ET. Penn State will be playing the first international game in its 128-year history.
Penn State will be playing at least one regular season night game for the 15th consecutive season. Additional kick times will be announced later this spring.
