Gameday Coverage: No. 15 Penn State vs. Idaho

No. 15 Penn State football (0-0, 0-0 Big Ten) will open the 2019 season against FCS Idaho on Saturday.

The Nittany Lions open up the season coming off a loss to Kentucky in the 2019 Citrus Bowl and a 9-4 overall record in 2018. Here’s everything you’ll need to know to be fully prepared for Saturday’s season opener:

Television

Saturday’s game will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and be broadcast on the Big Ten Network. Brandon Gaudin, James Laurinaitis, and Elise Menaker will be on the call.

Penn State Sports Network — Steve Jones, Jack Ham, and Derrick Williams
Local: 93.7 FM/1450 AM, Sirius: Ch. 132, XM: Ch. 195

Weather

Forecasts are calling for a beautiful day for football in Happy Valley this Saturday. Temperatures will be in the mid-to-high 70s and it’ll be partly sunny throughout the game, according to AccuWeather.

Last Meeting

Saturday will mark the first-ever meeting between Penn State and Idaho on the gridiron.

Injuries/Suspensions

Head coach James Franklin said that Penn State is as healthy as it’s ever been at the conclusion of training camp, but the team will still have two notable players absent from the lineup. Senior linebacker Cam Brown will sit out the first half of the game due to a targeting foul he committed in the Citrus Bowl, and backup cornerback Donovan Johnson will be suspended for week one due to a violation of team rules.
