Penn State Vs. Buffalo To Broadcast On ESPN2 At Noon Saturday

Penn State fans, rejoice — the higher-ups at ESPN saw last Saturday’s game and decided that the Nittany Lions’ next game is one that should be broadcast nationally. The first game at Beaver Stadium this year will feature the 1-0 Buffalo Bulls, who are coming off of a 51-14 win against the Albany Great Danes. Buffalo is expected to be one of Penn State’s least daunting matchups this year, but fans who won’t be able to see the game in person will get to tune in on TV.

The two teams have met only twice before, and only one is at all relevant. Buffalo won the first meeting of the two teams 10-0 just 115 years ago. They met again in 2007, this time a 45-24 win in Happy Valley for Penn State.

For the Nittany Lions, this game will serve as the beginning of the rest of the season — the disappointing Temple game is over and a five-game home stand starts now. Be sure to tune in and cheer on Penn State as it tries to get back on track this Saturday.
