Penn State-Northwestern To Air On ESPN

No. 11 Penn State football’s matchup with Northwestern will air on ESPN at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 1, the team announced Sunday.

It was previously announced that the game would air on one of ESPN’s several networks.

Interestingly enough, this will be the fifth different channel Penn State has played on this season in the same number of games. In order from the first game to the most recent, the Nittany Lions have played on FOX, ABC, CBS, and the Big Ten Network.

Penn State is coming off a 33-14 win over Central Michigan at Beaver Stadium. Northwestern, on the other hand, lost a home game 17-14 to Miami (OH) on Saturday.

This will be the first clash between the two squads since 2017. The Nittany Lions traveled to Evanston and beat the Wildcats 31-7 on October 7 of that year. The last time Northwestern traveled to Happy Valley was a different story, as it dominated Penn State 29-6 in 2014.

The game will serve as Penn State’s annual “All-U Day,” which recognizes Penn State students at all Commonwealth Campuses. Following their game against the Wildcats, the Nittany Lions will head into their bye week before a trip to Ann Arbor.
