Welcome to gameday, Penn State! The Nittany Lions travel to Ann Arbor for a meeting with No. 4 Michigan at the Big House. The injured Lions, who are missing starters Jason Cabinda, Nyeem Wartman-White, and Brandon Bell, prepare for an explosive Michigan offense on national television.

Penn State fell to the Wolverines 28-16 at Beaver Stadium in 2015. The Lions hope for their first victory over a top-five opponent in quite some time. Here’s all the media information you’ll need to tune into today’s action.
