The kickoff times and TV schedule for the Nittany Lions' initial two home football games – against Indiana State and Alabama – have been set, bringing the number of announced start times this season to four.

The opening game of Penn State's 125th season celebration is Sept. 3 vs. Indiana State. The contest will kick off at noon in Beaver Stadium and air on the Big Ten Network, the Nittany Lions' second announced BTN appearance this season. The Nittany Lions and Sycamores will be meeting for the first time.

Alabama will be playing in Happy Valley for the first time since 1989 when it visits Sept. 10 for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff. ABC will televise the game to a national audience. The Crimson Tide holds a 9-5 series advantage after winning last year in Tuscaloosa. All Penn State fans are encouraged to wear white to the highly anticipated contest.

Penn State's 92nd Homecoming game, vs. Purdue on Oct. 15, previously had been announced for a noon kickoff at Beaver Stadium, with TV coverage not yet confirmed. The Nittany Lions' Oct. 22 contest at Northwestern will be a 7 p.m. Eastern / 6 p.m. Central kickoff and will be televised by the Big Ten Network. Penn State will be playing a true conference away game on BTN for the first time in four years.

The start time for the Sept. 17 Penn State at Temple game at Lincoln Financial Field is expected to be announced later this month. All remaining Penn State kickoff times and TV information likely will be announced 12 days prior to each game, starting on Sept. 12 for the Sept. 24 home game with Eastern Michigan.
