Penn State-Purdue Football Game Slated for Noon Kickoff

Penn State’s November 16 game against the Purdue Boilermakers (1-7, 0-4) at Beaver Stadium has been slated for a 12 p.m. kickoff with televised coverage on the Big Ten Network, according to a tweet from the football team.

The Nittany Lions have a successful history against Purdue, compiling a 12-3-1 record against the Boilermakers. Penn State has won its last six games against Purdue dating back to 2005, including a 34-9 victory over the Boilermakers last season.

Purdue is arguably the worst team in the Big Ten this year. In its first year under head coach Darrell Hazell, the Boilermakers are one of three teams to be winless in conference play, and the team’s only victory was a 20-14 victory over an FCS school, Indiana State. Purdue has been shut out in its last two games, including a 55-0 beatdown at the hands of Ohio State last weekend.

The times for Penn State’s final two games of the season — at home against Nebraska and on the road against Wisconsin — have not been announced.
