Gameday Coverage: No. 7 Penn State vs. No. 6 Wisconsin

James Franklin and Paul Chyrst will meet for the first time this Saturday in Lucas Oil Stadium. No. 7 Penn State (10-2, 8-1 Big Ten) is riding an eight-game winning streak in conference play, while the No. 6 Badgers (10-2, 7-2 Big Ten) own one of the stingiest defenses in all of college football.

Here’s all the media and miscellaneous information you’ll need.

Television Coverage

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. ET on FOX. Gus Johnson will be on play-by-play duty, while Joel Klatt is your color commentator. Shannon Spake will report from the sidelines.

Radio

Penn State Sports Network — Steve Jones, Jack Ham, and Derrick Williams. Local: 93.7 FM/1450 AM. Sirius: Ch. 132. XM: Ch. 196.

Weather

Temperatures will hover around 36 under cloudy skies, according to AccuWeather, but we’ll be indoors so weather won’t be a factor.

Last Time They Met

A freshman Christian Hackenberg led Penn State to a 31-24 upset over the Badgers at Camp Randall in 2013. Wisconsin owns a slim 9-8 lead in the all-time series, but hasn’t won against the Nittany Lions since a 45-7 blowout in Madison in 2011.

Injuries

James Franklin is expecting redshirt freshman quarterback Alex Hornibrook to start for the Badgers, while Saquon Barkley won’t let an ankle injury deter him from playing in Indianapolis.

Line

Wisconsin -3, according to Westgate. Over/Under: 46.5 points

Media Coverage

Onward State will have you covered throughout the game, with big plays, photos, analysis, and more coming from our main @OnwardState Twitter and Facebook accounts, and play-by-play commentary coming from @OnwardStSports.
