Gameday Coverage: Penn State Vs. Buffalo

Happy game day, Penn State! The Nittany Lions (0-1) take on the Buffalo Bulls (1-0) today at noon. As you may recall, the last time we saw Penn State it was on the losing side of a 27-10 affair at Temple. Buffalo opened up its season with a 51-14 win against Albany.

The programs’ all-time series is tied 1-1, with the Bulls winning in 1900 and the Lions winning in 2007.
Below is all of the media information you’ll need for today’s game:
Kickoff: 12:00 p.m. Eastern time.
Television: ESPN
Radio: 93.7 FM | 1450 AM | Sirius: 135 | XM: 195
Weather: It should be in the low 60s all game, with a strong chance of thunderstorms.
Last time they met: Penn State defeated Buffalo 45-24 in 2007. The No. 12 Nittany Lions started off 3-0 with the win, and quarterback Anthony Morelli completed 20 of 27 passes for 202 yards and four touchdowns. The defense held Buffalo to 56 yards rushing.
Injuries: Nyeem Wartman-White headlines the game’s omissions, while James Franklin announced during the week that Kyle Carter had offseason surgery and only practiced two weeks prior to the season, so it’s up in the air how much we’ll see him today.
