Gameday Coverage: No. 2 Penn State vs. No. 19 Michigan

Penn State fans are in for a hell of a Saturday as the Nittany Lions host a primetime White Out with College GameDay in town for the first clash between two top 25 teams in Beaver Stadium since 2011.

Ahead of this clash with the Wolverines, here’s all the media and miscellaneous information you’ll need:

Television

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and you can catch the game live on ABC. Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit will be calling the game, with Maria Taylor and Tom Rinaldi reporting from the sidelines. College GameDay will air live Old Main Lawn at 9 a.m.

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

It will be high 40s for the start of GameDay and into the 50s for the end of the game, but the heart of tailgating hours will reach a peak of 74 degrees, according to Accuweather.

Last Time They Met

The Nittany Lions got absolutely throttled the last season when they played the Wolverines — falling 49-10 in the Big House. That was the last regular season loss Penn State had before embarking on a nine-game win streak to take the Big Ten title.

Injuries

Starting defensive end Torrence Brown is out for the season, Penn State confirmed on Saturday, after the Tuscaloosa, AL, native was carted off during the Georgia State game.

Cornerback John Reid injured his knee during spring ball. There is no timetable for his return.

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.

Sports editor David Abruzzese (@abruz11), Penn State news editor Steve Connelly (@slc2o), and sports writer Ethan Kasales (@easyEKasales) have you covered up in the press box. Photographers Alex Bauer and Matt Sniegowski (@m_sniegowski) will be down on the field.
