Penn State-Michigan State Slated For Afternoon Kickoff

Update October 29, 12:04 a.m.: Penn State’s clash at Michigan will officially kick off at noon and will be aired on FOX.

Original story: No. 2 Penn State football announced that its game on Nov. 4 against Michigan State will kick off at either noon or 3:30 p.m. The time will be determined on Sunday, per Penn State football SID Kris Petersen.

The game in East Lansing will likely be Penn State’s third consecutive matchup against a top 25 opponent with the Spartans currently ranked No. 16 in the AP Poll, posting a 6-1 record through eight weeks of the season.

The game, which is technically a rivalry as the battle for the Land Grant Trophy, is just Penn State’s second game in Spartan Stadium since the Big Ten split into divisions in 2011. Michigan State took that last game in East Lansing during the 2015 season by a whopping 55-16.

Penn State got revenge last year by blowing out the Spartans 45-12 in the final game of the regular season. The winner of this matchup in each of the past two years has gone on to win the Big Ten Championship.

The Nittany Lions are still waiting on two kickoff time announcements for this season — the November 18 home game against Nebraska and the November 25 road game against Maryland. James Franklin’s squad will take on No. 6 Ohio State at 3:30 on FOX this Saturday and faces Rutgers at noon on November 11 for the Homecoming game.
