Big Ten Network To Air Two Penn State Football Classics

Penn State fans can get their football fix by tuning in to the Big Ten Network Thursday night. BTN is planning on airing two Nittany Lion classics from the 2016 season.

The first game, scheduled for 8:30 p.m., is the White Out win against Ohio State. The Nittany Lions famously came back from a 21-7 deficit to beat the No. 2-ranked Buckeyes, and Grant Haley was cemented into Happy Valley lore after returning a blocked field goal for the win.

The second matchup to be featured is the October 1 win against Minnesota. Coming off a 49-10 loss at the hands of No. 4 Michigan, the Nittany Lions beat the Gophers in overtime on a 25-yard Saquon Barkley touchdown run.

The Minnesota win was a turning point in the season’s conference championship campaign. The Nittany Lions got a head of steam in October, as they won the rest of their regular-season games en route to a Big Ten Championship.

Nittany Lion fans won’t be able to crowd Beaver Stadium like usual this fall, so why not sit back and reminisce on better days? Tune in at 8:30 p.m. to relive two historic Penn State football victories.
