Gameday Coverage: Penn State at Indiana

The Nittany Lions are in Bloomington this weekend to take on the Hoosiers of Indiana, looking to snap a four-game losing streak, and get one win closer to the six-win threshold that grants a team bowl eligibility. After a 44-24 beatdown from Indiana last year, Penn State will look to return to its historic dominance over the Hoosiers, who are just 1-16 all-time against the Blue and White.

The Hoosiers have had a mixed season, so far going 3-5 with a great win in Columbia against the then-ranked Missouri Tigers, and a loss to Bowling Green. Indiana needs a win here to have any realistic shot of making a bowl game.

Below is all of the media information you’ll need for Saturday’s game:

Kickoff: Noon, Eastern time.

Television: Big Ten Network– Eric Collins, Chuck Long and Lisa Byington.

Radio: Penn State Sports Network: Steve Jones, Jack Ham, Loren Crispell. Local: 93.7 FM & 1450 AM. Indiana Sports Network: Don Fischer, Buck Suhr & Joe Smith. Sirius: Ch. 84; XM: Ch. 84.

Weather: The temperature looks to be about 49 come kickoff in Bloomington, with a zero percent chance of rain being reported. The skies are supposed to be partly cloud, with the temperature getting up to 51, and down as low as 31.

Last time they met: It was bad. Embarrassing even. In fact, let’s just not talk about it.

Injuries: Miles Dieffenbach (knee), Adam Breneman (knee), Ben Kline (Achilles), Zach Zwinak (leg injury) and Ryan Keiser are all injured for the Nittany Lions. Breneman, Keiser, Zwinak and Kline are done for the year, however, Dieffenbach has been practicing and may play.
