Penn State’s Season Finale at Wisconsin Set for 3:30 Kickoff

Penn State’s 2013 season finale against 19th ranked Wisconsin (8-2, 5-1) will kick off at 3:30 p.m. in Madison, the athleic department announced today.

Wisconsin has been one of the most underrated teams in America this season, with its only losses coming at Arizona State in a game that they probably should have won and at Ohio State, where the Badgers gave the Buckeyes their closest call of the season.

The game is a rematch of last season’s unforgettable season finale at Beaver Stadium, when Bill O’Brien and his team of fuc…um…fighters rallied from an early deficit to beat the Badgers in overtime, 24-21. Zach Zwinak ran for 179 yards and a touchdown, while Matt McGloin went 19-for-37 with 200 yards and a touchdown.

This year, Wisconsin is a much improved squad. Behind star running backs Melvin Gordon and James White, the Badgers have rushed for 3,079 yards and 34 touchdowns this season. Wisconsin also has a stout defense, led by linebacker Chris Borland, which has allowed 14 points per game this season, good for fifth in all of D-I football. The Badgers have not lost since September 28.

Penn State is 7-9 all time against Wisconsin, and the Badgers have won three of the last four meetings between the two teams. Television information for the game is TBA.
