Gameday Coverage: No. 4 Penn State vs. Indiana

0

No. 4 Penn State is back in action at Beaver Stadium for a clash with Indiana following the Nittany Lions’ late escape in Kinnick Stadium on a last-second Juwan Johnson touchdown catch. James Franklin’s squad has the chance to move to 5-0 for the first time since 2008, but will have to save a test from the Hoosiers, who just barely fell to Penn State in their meeting last year in Memorial Stadium.

Ahead of this clash, here’s all the media and miscellaneous information you’ll need:

Television

Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. and you can catch the game live on BTN. Brandon Gaudin and Glen Mason will be calling the game, with Elise Menaker reporting from the sidelines.

Radio

Penn State Sports Network — Steve Jones, Jack Ham, and Derrick Williams. Local: 93.7 FM/1450 AM. Sirius: Ch. 132. XM: Ch. 196.

Weather

It’s supposed to be partly sunny and 60 degrees at kickoff, according to AccuWeather.

Last Time They Met

Penn State has won 19 of its 20 meetings against the Hoosiers, including last year’s where Trace McSorley threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns to help the Nittany Lions prevail late, 45-31.

Injuries

Cornerback John Reid injured his knee during spring ball. There is no timetable for his return.

Starting defensive end Torrence Brown is out for the season, Penn State confirmed on Saturday, after the Tuscaloosa, AL, native was carted off during the Georgia State game.

Right tackle Chasz Wright will likely return this week from an undisclosed injury that kept him out of the Iowa game.
