Penn State-Indiana To Kick at Noon in Bloomington
The Big Ten Network announced another early kick for the Nittany Lions today, as Penn State and Indiana will kick off at noon on November 8 in Bloomington.
The Lions will look to avenge last year’s ugly loss. The game will be an interesting matchup, as Indiana features running back Tevin Coleman, who leads the Big Ten in rushing, and sits third in the nation behind Marshall’s Devon Johnson and Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah with 1,192 yards and 11 touchdowns.
The Hoosiers are currently riding a two-game losing streak and sit at 3-4 on the season, dead last in the Big Ten East Division. Indiana began its season in peculiar fashion, losing to Bowling Green in Week 2, only to defeat 2013 SEC East champion Missouri Tigers on the road.
The Nittany Lions fell to the Hoosiers 44-24 last season, despite a 340-yard, three-touchdown performance from Christian Hackenberg. Penn State will count on a strong performance from Hackenberg, along with an impressive showing from its defensive front in hopes that it can contain the explosive Coleman. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.
