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

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.

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