After suffering its first loss of the season, Penn State will look to bounce back against Michigan State in week 10. The game has been slotted for a noon kick off in East Lansing, and will air on FOX.
The Spartans are also recovering from a heartbreaking loss of their own, losing to Northwestern 39-31 in a triple overtime thriller. Michigan State had entered the game ranked #18 and were considered a heavy favorite against the Wildcats, who had failed to meet early expectation as a contender for the Big Ten West Division.
This will be the first of at least two consecutive noon games for the Nittany Lions. Penn State is slated to take on Rutgers in a late Homecoming game at noon on Nov. 11 in Beaver Stadium. Start times for Penn State’s final two games of the regular season, Nebraska at home and at Maryland, have yet to be announced.
Penn State soundly defeated the Spartans 45-12 a season ago, propelled by a huge second half effort after being behind 12-10 at the half.
