Gameday Coverage: No. 12 Penn State Football vs. Rutgers
Penn State football’s season is in the home stretch.
The Nittany Lions host the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at noon for their final game at Beaver Stadium of this year’s campaign.

Meanwhile, Rutgers is also coming off a 22-0 loss at Iowa, its fourth loss of the season. However, the Scarlet Knights became bowl-eligible after beating Indiana 31-14 last month.
