With the Big Ten’s new media rights, there are several questions about broadcast still unanswered, and unlike previous years, those announcements are trickling in slightly later than expected.

The suspense starts to fade away today, as the Penn State twitter account announced that the season opener against Akron will be broadcast at Noon on ABC. This is the sixth meeting between the team, with the last meeting coming in 2014, a 21-3 Penn State victory. Penn State is 5-0 in the series.

As the summer continues to roll, expect more of these announcements to show up, with the obvious dates expected to go to primetime.
