Michigan/Penn State set for prime time at Beaver Stadium

Jerry DiPaola
Penn State coach James Franklin wants Beaver Stadium to host high school football state championship games.

Penn State’s annual game with Michigan, which could feature two Top 20 teams on national television, will be contested in prime time Oct. 19 at Beaver Stadium. It will be televised by ABC.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. It is also Penn State’s annual White Out game.

Penn State (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) is No. 10 in the Associated Press poll while Michigan (4-1, 2-1) is No. 16. The Nittany Lions travel to No. 17 Iowa (4-1, 1-1) on Saturday for a game that also will be televised by ABC. The Wolverines visit Illinois (2-3, 0-2).

Penn State and Michigan have met every year since 2013 in Big Ten games. Penn State has won only eight of 22 in the all-time series, but five of those victories were at Beaver Stadium. Michigan was Penn State’s White Out opponent in 2017, and the Nittany Lions won, 42-13. Michigan prevailed last season in Ann Arbor, 42-7.

After Michigan, Penn State has only two remaining home games — Nov. 15 against Indiana and Nov. 30 against Rutgers.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
