Home Opener vs. EMU Set for Noon Kickoff has announced that Penn State Football’s 2013 home opener against the Eastern Michigan Eagles will start at noon on Saturday, September 7.

This is the second time in three years the Eagles will visit Happy Valley. Penn State obliterated an Eastern Michigan team that went on to be 6-6 on the season in 2011, 34-6. Matt McGloin threw for 220 yards and three touchdowns in the contest, Rob Bolden chipped in 115 yards and a touchdown, and Silas Redd ran for 48 yards on 12 carries.

So far, five of Penn State’s twelve games have announced their start times: 3:30 pm on August 31 against Syracuse, the aforementioned Eastern Michigan game, 6 pm on September 14 against UCF, October 12 at 5 pm against Michigan, and 8 pm on October 26 at Ohio State.

The remaining seven games (vs. Kent State, at Indiana, vs. Illinois, at Minnesota, vs. Purdue, vs. Nebraska) will announce their kickoffs sometime in the future, likely a week or two before the designated game.
