Penn State-Temple Slated For 3:30 Kickoff

Throwback. (via Mike Pettigano)

With a program that just nine months ago was deemed toxic enough to warrant a drop to the TicketCity Bowl, Penn State is certainly getting some great television coverage this season.

Today it was announced next week's matchup with Temple will be shown on ABC (ESPN2 outside the ABC coverage area) at 3:30 p.m. Once again, Penn State will be televised nationally, this the fourth time in four weeks. It's like things haven't changed at all.

The Temple game will feature a reunion of the 1982 national championship team as well as All-University Day, bringing together all the Penn State branch campuses in University Park. More importantly, however, is that the Temple game earned the distinction of being the second "Blue Out" game, the first unofficially taking place last year against Nebraska seven days after the scandal started.

For those who can't be in State College, it also means we can sleep in a little longer if we'd like which is always a good thing considering the debauchery detailed in some of the Saturday morning open-thread comments/my Twitter timeline.
