Penn State Vs. Nebraska To Kick Off At 4:00 P.M.

Penn State announced that Thanksgiving Break will get off to a late start when the No. 14 Nittany Lions kick off against Nebraska at 4:00 p.m. on November 18. The game will air on Fox Sports One.

Penn State heads into its final game at Beaver Stadium this season looking to finish unbeaten at home for the second consecutive year. The Nittany Lions have won 11 of their last 12 home games and have not lost at Beaver Stadium since November 21, 2015 against Michigan. A win over the Cornhuskers in the potentially final home game of Saquon Barkley’s career and on Senior Day for Mike Gesicki, Jason Cabinda, and Marcus Allen, would push the impressive run of home field advantage to 14 straight wins.

While they have struggled all season and own a 4-6 record in the much weaker Big Ten West, the Cornhuskers have won the last four meetings between the two cross-division foes, dating back to 2003. Nebraska leads the all-time series 9-7.
