NCAA Football: Nebraska at Penn State Matthew O’Haren-USA TODAY Sports

Penn State fans on the won’t be sleeping in on Nov. 14 if they want to catch the Nittany Lions against Nebraska.

That’s because Penn State’s game with the Huskers in Memorial Stadium will kick off at 12 a.m. Eastern, 11 local on Fox Sports 1.

We’ve already seen road teams struggle in the past with 11 a.m. kicks and without a crowd to provide any energy, the Nittany Lions will need to ensure they’re ready to go from the opening kickoff.

Nebraska leads the all-time series, 9-8, and is 3-1 against Penn State as a member of the Big Ten. The Nittany Lions do, however, hold the most-recent victory as the two teams combined for 100 points in a wild 56-44 win in 2017.

The Huskers currently sit at 0-1 on the year after losing to Ohio State in week one. Their week two game with Wisconsin was canceled following a number of positive COVID-19 tests by Badgers players and staff.
