Penn State Football Set For Noon Kickoff Against Army

The Penn State football program announced today that its Military Appreciation Day matchup against Army West Point on October 3 will kick off at 12 p.m., Eastern time. The game will be broadcast on ESPNU.

Army has has a rough start to the season, as the Black Knights are currently 0-3 after losses to Fordham, Connecticut, and Wake Forest. All three losses have been by five points or less.

Earlier this month, the athletic department announced the game is sold out, thanks to the generosity of Penn State fans. Through the “Seats for Servicemembers” program, more than 6,500 tickets have been purchased and donated by fans and local businesses for servicemembers and their families, setting a new record for the program after Nittany Lions fans bought 5,500 tickets for servicemembers in 2014.

With today’s announcement, the next four kickoff times for Penn State football games have been set. This weekend’s matchup against San Diego State will start at 3:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network, the Homecoming game vs. Indiana on October 10 will be at noon (TV broadcast information hasn’t been announced yet), and the prime-time showdown at No. 1 Ohio State on October 17 will be under the lights at 8 p.m. on either ABC, ESPN, or ESPN2.
