The Penn State Nittany Lions will travel to Ann Arbor this upcoming weekend looking for their first victory of the 2020 season. The kickoff and television network for the game was announced on Sunday afternoon, a noon kickoff on ABC (Bless the heart of anyone who isn’t a Penn State or Michigan fan who chooses to watch this).

The Nittany Lions are coming off a 41-21 loss to Iowa on Saturday, dropping their record to 0-5 on the season. The Wolverines, on the other hand, are 2-3 on the season after finding victory No.2 on Saturday night, a 48-42 victory over Rutgers in triple overtime.

The Nittany Lions will be looking for their second straight victory over the Wolverines after a 28-21 victory in Happy Valley last season. The two programs have traded victories over their last four matchups.

Penn State will also be looking to exorcise some demons in “The Big House,” with their last two games in Ann Arbor lost by a combined 91-17. Their last victory over the Wolverines on the road came in 2009, a 35-10 win that saw Darryl Clark pass for four touchdowns and the Nittany Lions defense keeping Michigan to just 250 total yards of offense.
