Penn State-Minnesota Game Set for Noon Kickoff

Penn State’s November 9 matchup against the 6-2 (2-2) Minnesota Golden Gophers is set to kick off at noon and televised on ESPN2.

The matchup is the first time the two teams have played since 2010, when the Nittany Lions traveled to Minneapolis and defeated the Golden Gophers, 33-21. Rob Bolden and Matt McGloin combined for 17-for-26 passing with 206 yards, 3 touchdowns, and an interception, while Silas Redd and Evan Royster combined for 19 carries and 133 yards and a touchdown.

Overall, Penn State is 8-4 historically against Minnesota, and the Nittany Lions have won the last four meetings between the two teams.

The times and television coverage for Penn State’s final three games — hosting Purdue and Nebraska, and traveling to Wisconsin — still have not been announced.

The Golden Gophers have quietly been one of the best stories in college football. Head coach Jerry Kill decided to take a leave of absence to receive treatment for epilepsy after suffering a seizure on the sideline during the team’s October 5 game against Michigan, and since then, the team has won two straight games against Northwestern and Nebraska.
