White Out Against Michigan!
Beaver Stadium is back in the prime time. Michigan’s Rich Rodriguez and the Wolverines will make their way to Happy Valley for some Big Ten football action October 30, which will be the White Out game. The contest, which earned an 8 p.m. starting slot, will be the last time these two rivals meet until 2013– something I’m sure Michigan fans won’t mind!
The last time they visited in 2008, it ended in a 46-17 blowout victory favoring the Nittany Lions. Penn State also walked away from Ann Arbor victorious in 2009. However, this year could be different. Both teams are rebuilding and will rely heavily on their defense. It’s too early to say now, but don’t expect 46 points on the end of the scoreboard. Do, however, expect a third Penn State victory.
This match-up, which marks the 11th consecutive season with a prime time game at Beaver Stadium, will air on ESPN, ESPN2, or ABC. It will look to top 2005’s match up with Ohio State, which attracted 4.435 million U.S. cable households.
