Another huge game in the Big Ten kicks off Saturday when Penn State visits Michigan.
Penn State ended up on the wrong end of the stick the last time they played a top-five team this season, but will be looking for a different result this time rotund. On tap this week is a tough matchup in Ann arbor to take on the No. 5 Wolverines.
This official start time of 3:45 is a bit of an odd time for a college football kick, but nonetheless, the game will be part of the nationally televised slate on Saturday.
ESPN will carry the game live and have the usual ABC primetime crew of Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit in the broadcast booth. Herbstreit will fly into Ann Arbor after appearing on College GameDay at LSU in the morning.
Despite the trip to Ann Arbor being about a seven-hour drive from State College, the Nittany Lions will likely be well-represented in Michigan. Penn State is traditionally known as a team whose fans travel very well and come out in droves to show support.
Nittany Lion fans who decide to make the trip to the Big House will work hard to make themselves heard among the throng of those dressed in maize and blue.
For fans not attending the game live and those that won’t be settled near a television, the game can be streamed on a number of different devices by using the WatchESPN app.
Michigan has had a lot of success against Penn State over the years, holding a 13-8 edge in the all-time series. Penn State has just three wins at the Big House, with the last coming in 2009.
