The final game of Penn State's 2012 season will be broadcast nationally once again as it was announced today that the kickoff for Wisconsin on November 24 is slated for 3:30 p.m. and will be an ABC regional broadcast.
The Wisconsin game is designated as Senior Day and it's sure to be one of the more emotional senior sendoffs in recent memory. Michael Mauti, Matt McGloin and Michael Zordich are just some of the young men who will be honored pre-game. Hopefully students (who will be off for Thanksgiving break) and alumni alike will pack Beaver Stadium well before kickoff to recognize the young men who led this program through the events of the past year.
The Badgers are led by Montee Ball who has rushed for 1,226 yards and 16 touchdowns on the season and, with two touchdowns this upcoming week, could come into Happy Valley as the leading touchdown scorer in the history of the NCAA. Wisconsin has started three different quarterbacks this year after the ACC-transfer experiment failed to work a second time with Danny O'Brien's poor early-season performances.
Wisconsin has already won the faux Leaders Division title and will one of the representatives in the Big Ten Championship game on December 1st where they will take on either Nebraska or Michigan. Depending on their result with Ohio State this weekend, it is possible that the game with the Badgers will determine if Penn State would be able to earn a share of the actual division title. The Buckeyes would need to lose their last two conference games (at Wisconsin, vs. Michigan) for any chance of that happening.
