Penn State-Indiana To Kickoff At Noon On ABC

Following No. 12 Penn State’s satisfying 41-14 drubbing of Iowa under the lights, the program announced its upcoming road tilt with Indiana will kickoff at noon ET on ABC/ESPN2 from Memorial Stadium.

The Nittany Lions put on a show offensively Saturday night, reaching 7-2 (5-1 Big Ten) to secure their 12th straight winning season. Kevin Wilson’s Hoosiers pulled away from Rutgers in the fourth quarter to win 33-27 in Piscataway, N.J., and inch closer to a bowl berth at 5-4 (3-3 Big Ten).

However, Heisman contender Saquon Barkley and Penn State will have something to say about that next Saturday in Bloomington. The star sophomore and quarterback Trace McSorley orchestrated the read-option to perfection versus the Hawkeyes, and should have plenty of running room against an Indiana defense that allows its opponents an average of 27 points per game. Penn State, on the other hand, is putting up 415 total yards a contest and 34 points.
