Gameday Coverage: Penn State vs. Michigan

Penn State is set to face Michigan in the Big House for the first time since 2009. The Nittany Lions (4-1) come into the game off their first loss, a 29-6 debacle against Northwestern. Michigan (2-4) is on a three-game losing streak after dropping games against Utah, Minnesota, and Rutgers.

This will be the first ever Big Ten night game in Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines have only played “Under the Lights” twice at home in their 135 year history — two wins against Notre Dame, in 2011 and 2013.

Penn State hasn’t lost to Michigan since Sept. 22, 2007.

Kickoff: 7 p.m. Eastern time.
