Gameday Coverage: Penn State vs. Ohio State

Good morning, Nittany Lion fans! Penn State (5-1) travels to Big Ten rival and the nation’s No. 1 team, Ohio State (6-0), with each looking to win today make a statement to the country.

The Buckeyes are coming off of a win against Maryland to remain undefeated halfway through the season. On the other side, Penn State lost its opener to Temple before running the table in a five-game home stand.

With a primetime, nationally televised kickoff at the Horseshoe around the corner, here’s all the information you need to know for tonight’s game.

Kickoff: 8 p.m. Eastern time.
Television: ABC.
Weather: According to Accuweather, there should be a RealFeel of 39-35 degrees if you’re tailgating between 4 and 7 p.m., then temperatures will remain in the mid- to low-30s for the rest of the night.
Last time they met: Penn State lost a controversial double-overtime classic last year in Beaver Stadium.
Injuries: Nyeem Wartman-White is still out of course. Franklin loves to never give insight about injuries, but a few players on defense are banged up, and it’d be a shock to see Akeel Lynch. Adam Breneman warmed up last week, and is rumored to be closer to on-field action. During the week, Franklin said doctors have made a decision on Saquon Barkley, but didn’t reveal what that was.
