Gameday Coverage: Penn State vs. Michigan State

Good morning, Nittany Lions! Mark Dantonio’s No. 5 Michigan State Spartans host the Nittany Lions this week, marking the fourth time this season the Nittany Lions will play a ranked team. This also serves as the last game of the regular season for both teams. The 10-1 Spartans control their destiny to earn a spot in the Big Ten Championship and College Football Playoff, and 7-5 Penn State is trying to spoil Michigan State’s year while earning a spot in a good bowl game.

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

Kickoff: 3:30 p.m., Eastern time.
Television: ESPN
Weather: It’s late November in East Lansing, so if you’re going to the game dress warm. The temperature should be around 40 degrees at kick. It’s expected to be partly cloudy with no chance of precipitation.
Last time they met: Penn State lost the last game of the regular season at Beaver Stadium last year after giving up a touchdown on the opening kickoff. The final score was 34-10, but it didn’t kill Penn State’s momentum heading into the Pinstripe Bowl.
Injuries: Nyeem Wartman-White is still out for the season, as is Jordan Lucas. Otherwise, there have been no announcements regarding the rest of the team.
