Penn State-Michigan State To Kickoff At 3:30 On ESPN

No. 8 Penn State (9-2, 7-1 Big Ten) announced its regular-season finale against Michigan State on Senior Day will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. on ESPN.

James Franklin’s Nittany Lions took Rutgers to school in a 39-0 shellacking in Piscataway, keeping their hopes of representing the Big Ten East in Indianapolis alive. They need to beat the Spartans and hope Ohio State tops Michigan. If so, pack your bags for Lucas Oil Stadium, Penn Staters! Michigan State (3-8, 1-7 Big Ten) nearly stunned the Buckeyes in East Lansing, but Mark Dantonio elected to go for two and its upset bid would fall just short, 17-16.

While the Spartans are clearly a different team in 2016, let’s not forget the embarrassing 55-16 whooping they dished out last fall. Michigan State owns a slim 15-14-1 lead in the all-time series between these two programs, winning each of the last three games. The last time Penn State beat the Spartans in Beaver Stadium was in 2008 when it clinched its third Rose Bowl berth. My, how history (perhaps) has a way of repeating itself.
