Gameday Coverage: Penn State vs. Michigan

Good morning, Nittany Lions! Jim Harbaugh’s No. 12 Michigan Wolverines are in town this week, the third time this season the Nittany Lions will play a ranked team. The last time Michigan was in Beaver Stadium, well, you know what happened (hint: it involved four overtimes). And if you’re going to the game today, remember to dress in all white.

Here’s all of the media information you’ll need for today’s matchup.

Kickoff: Noon, Eastern time.
Television: ABC
Weather: It’s late November in State College, so dress warm. The temperature should be around 43 degrees at kick, with a high of 45 throughout the day. It’s expected to be partly cloudy.
Last time they met: Penn State lost a frustrating 18-13 affair in Ann Arbor last year. Brady Hoke rose above the doubters and coached a good enough game to beat 4-1 Penn State.
Injuries: Nyeem Wartman-White is still out for the season, as is Jordan Lucas now. Otherwise, there have been no announcements regarding the rest of the team.
