Penn State Football’s Clash With Ohio State Set for 8 p.m. Kickoff

It looks like this year’s #OhioStateHateWeek will cap off with James Franklin’s first White House.

Penn State football’s Oct. 25 showdown with Urban Meyer, Braxton Miller, and the rest of the Ohio State Buckeyes in Beaver Stadium will kick off at 8 p.m., and will be shown on either ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2.

This is the first time a Penn State home game has kicked off at 8 p.m. since 2010, when the Nittany Lions took down Michigan 41-31 behind 150 yards and two touchdowns from Evan Royster.

The game will also be Penn State’s second night game in as many weeks, as the Nittany Lions will travel to Ann Arbor on Oct. 11 to take on Michigan. The game is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m., and it is the first home Big Ten night game in Michigan history.

Penn State has not beaten Ohio State since 2011, when the Tom Bradley-led Nittany Lions went into Columbus and took down the Buckeyes 20-14, giving Bradley his only win as Penn State’s head coach. Penn State has dropped its last two to the Buckeyes, including a 63-14 throttling at the hands of the Buckeyes in Columbus last year.

This will be Meyer’s second time visiting Beaver Stadium. In 2012, Ohio State took down Penn State, 35-23. Let’s hope Penn State can avenge that loss…and that Mike Hull blocks another punt that makes the entire stadium go absolutely insane.
