UMass-Penn State Set For 4 P.M. Kick

UPDATE: 2 p.m. — Penn State has announced that the previously announced Band Jam event is set to start at 2 p.m. on Saturday, two hours before the 4 p.m. kickoff. The event will start a half hour after the Blue Band leads the team into the stadium.


That’s a surprise.

Destined for a noon kickoff, when many non-marquee pre-conference games are slotted, Penn State’s Sept. 20 matchup against UMass will begin at 4 p.m, the Big Ten announced today.

The game will be televised on the Big Ten Network. Michigan’s contest against Utah took the national 3:30 slot on ESPN2.

The Minutemen currently sit at 0-2, after losses to Boston College and Colorado State. They travel to Vanderbilt — James Franklin’s old stomping grounds — this Saturday, before arriving in State College. The Commodores are also 0-2.

UMass is a bad football team. It joined the Football Bowl Subdivision in 2011, and became bowl eligible in 2013. The Minutemen have won two games since the beginning of the 2012 season.
