Penn State-Ohio State Set To Clash In Primetime For Whiteout

The ABC family of networks announced today that it has selected Ohio State’s trip to Happy Valley on October 22 as one of the Big Ten games it will air in primetime this year. The announcement surely comes as a relief to Nittany Lion fans after a less-than-stellar atmosphere for last year’s Whiteout, which began at noon.

The game will kickoff at 8 p.m., marking the fifth year in a row the two teams will meet at that time, and the eight time the game will be played in primetime since the original Whiteout game in 2005. The announcement marks the first set time for a game this year, though with the hype building around Penn State’s visit to Pittsburgh in September it would come as no surprise to see that game eventually announced for primetime as well.

The last time the Nittany Lions and the Buckeyes met under the lights it did not end well for Penn State, losing by 28 in Ohio State’s first-ever “Blackout” game. James Franklin and Co. hopes that this year will be closer to the Whiteout game of two years ago but with a different end result, as, after some highly questionable officiating, the Nittany Lions fell in double-overtime.
