Gameday Coverage: No. 10 Penn State vs. No. 3 Michigan
Penn State football’s season comes down to this.
The No. 10 Nittany Lions will host the No. 3 Michigan Wolverines at noon on Saturday, November 11, at Beaver Stadium in the annual Stripe Out. It’s one of the biggest Penn State home games in recent memory, with hopes of a Big Ten title and a trip to the College Football Playoff riding on the showdown.
Whether you’re going to the game or not, there are plenty of ways to keep up with the heavily anticipated showdown between these two giants.
Penn State is on FOX for the fourth time this season and is getting the network’s primary crew for the third time this season. Gus Johnson and Joel Klatt will be in the booth handling play-by-play and color commentary duties, while Jenny Taft will have updates from the sidelines. Big Noon Kickoff will also air from outside the Bryce Jordan Center.

Penn State was dominated 41-17 by Michigan in Ann Arbor last season. The Wolverines are on a two-game win streak against the Nittany Lions and lead the all-time series 16-10.
Chop Robinson missed the last two games after exiting the Ohio State contest with an injury, but he was seen practicing with contact on Wednesday. Trey Wallace and Amin Vanover’s statuses remain unclear, as Wallace was out and Vanover was questionable against Maryland. James Franklin said throughout the week he’s hopeful to see Robinson and Vanover available against Michigan.
The Nittany Lions stand at +176 against the Wolverines and are 4.5-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The over-under is set at 45.5 points.
