Three kickoff times expected for Penn State's football schedule
Blue White Illustrated has confirmed the expected kickoff times for Penn State's games against Indiana, Ohio State and Michigan
Blue White Illustrated has confirmed the expected kickoff times for three of Penn State's biggest games of the 2020 season.
To start, the Nittany Lions will travel to Indiana Oct. 24 for a 3:30 p.m. eastern time kickoff against the Hoosiers. The game will air on Fox Sports 1.
The following week, Oct. 31, should be Penn State's biggest game of the season, as Ohio State comes to Beaver Stadium for what's expected to be a top 10 showdown. Once again, that game has been selected by ABC and is expected to start at 7:30 p.m. eastern time. This will be the fourth straight game at home against the Buckeyes that has aired in primetime. The last time it didn't air at night was in 2012. That game kicked at 5:30 p.m. eastern time and aired on ESPN.
Later in the season, Nov. 28, Penn State will face another division rival, Michigan, in Ann Arbor. That game is expected to take place at 12 p.m. eastern time, with FOX planning to carry the game for its "Big Noon Kickoff."
While the Indiana and Ohio State times are locked in for the first few weeks, it should be noted that the Michigan time can still technically change. The broadcast networks have tentatively set the schedule, but they also hold the right to change those times if teams perform above or below standards. With that said, as long as both Michigan and Penn State perform as expected, FOX will carry the game in the noon slot.
Finally, Blue White Illustrated can also informed that Penn State won't play any of its scheduled games on Friday this season.
