Michigan State-Penn State Senior Day Tilt To Kick at 3:30

Penn State’s string of noon games will finally end in time for Senior Day — the Nittany Lions’ final regular season kick of the year will come at 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 29 against Michigan State in Beaver Stadium.

Penn State will have played four straight noon games by the time its regular season finale rolls around. Strangely, it’s also the first 3:30 p.m. kick of the year for the Lions. It’ll be broadcast on either ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2.

Michigan State (8-2; 5-1 B1G) was a playoff contender all season before it fell to Ohio State at home on Nov. 8, effectively removing it from contention. But the Spartans will still be one of the toughest opponents Penn State (6-4; 2-4 B1G) will see all year, currently ranked No. 10 in the AP Poll. This is the first time Penn State and Michigan State will play since 2010, when the Spartans won 28-22. The battle for the Land Grant Trophy has been hotly contested over the years, as Penn State holds a 14-13-1 edge over the Spartans.

Before the teams see one another, Penn State will play at Illinois at noon and Michigan State will take on Rutgers at home. Penn State finally became bowl eligible with its last win over Temple. And don’t forget: This is also the annual Blue Out game.
