Penn State football fans now have at least one night game to look forward to. The Nittany Lions will start the season with a noon matchup against Akron on Sept. 2, followed by the much-anticipated rematch against Pitt, which will kick off at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 9 in Beaver Stadium. The Nittany Lions’ biggest test of the season – a road game against Ohio State – will also kick off at 3:30 p.m. in Columbus.
The Georgia State Panthers joined the FBS on July 1, 2013, but have posted just a 10-39 record since the move. Penn State is easily the biggest name on the Panthers’ 2017 schedule – and it’ll all be under the lights.
