It might be called “B1G NOON KICKOFF” but that won’t be the case for Penn State when it takes on Iowa. Instead, the Nittany Lions and Hawkeyes will kickoff at 4:00 p.m.

This will be the first time since 2008 that Penn State’s roadtrip to Kinnick won’t involve a primetime kick, with 2010, 2012, 2017, and 2019 all being night kicks. Of course, that 2008 game we don’t talk about because Anthony Scirrotto is apparently not allowed to make a play on the ball and yes, I am still mad about it, thanks for asking.
Provided that Penn State takes care of business next week against Indiana, and Iowa does the same next Friday night against Maryland, this will be the first Top 10 matchup in Kinnick during the Kirk Ferentz Era. So yeah, big game, folks.
