Big Ten Network To Host ‘Penn State Day’ July 15
The Big Ten Network will broadcast a full slate of Penn State content on Wednesday, July 15 as part of its month-long “School Day” programming lineup.
Beginning at 6 a.m., the network will broadcast notable nearly 24 hours of Nittany Lions wins, comebacks, and championship games to take your run-of-the-mill Wednesday to the next level.
The festivities will kick off with a Penn State baseball matchup against Illinois and continue with women’s hockey, gymnastics, and volleyball. At 3 p.m., the network will re-air Penn State men’s basketball’s 2019 stunner over Michigan, which knocked off the No. 6-ranked Wolverines at the Bryce Jordan Center.
Later, at 5 p.m., you can relieve Penn State football’s perfect 11-0 1986 season, which led to its second national title in four years. At 6 p.m., the network will broadcast the 1987 Fiesta Bowl, an iconic game that saw Penn State take down Miami with a last-second interception to pull of the aforementioned title run.
Of course, no montage of Penn State athletic events would be complete without wrestling. Luckily, fans can catch a myriad of Big Ten Championship action from 7 to 10 p.m. before re-living Penn State football’s 2016 season with an hour-long feature at 10 p.m.
The evening will wrap up with Penn State football’s 38-31 victory over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship. Down 21 points, Trace McSorley and Saquon Barkley led the Nittany Lions to victory in a game we’ll all surely remember for ages.
With nearly 24 hours of content to choose from, you really can’t go wrong Wednesday. So, grab a bowl of popcorn, hunker down on the couch, and bet on Penn State all day long. I’ve got a pretty good feeling…
