Lions, Wolverines to play night game

UNIVERSITY PARK – Penn State’s Oct. 11 Big Ten road clash at Michigan has been set for prime time and is the Nittany Lions’ second announced kick time for the 2014 season.

Coach James Franklin’s Nittany Lions will visit Ann Arbor for a 7 p.m. clash that will air on ESPN or ESPN2, the Penn State Sports Network and The Big Ten East Division contest will be Michigan’s first Big Ten home night game and the third overall in Michigan Stadium history.

The Nittany Lions and Wolverines will be meeting for the 18th time overall and the second consecutive year in prime time.

Penn State has won the last four meetings on the field against Michigan. The teams will be meeting in Michigan Stadium for the first time since 2009. The two traditional powers are Big Ten East Division rivals starting this season and will play annually.

Last October, Penn State rallied to defeat No. 18 Michigan, 43-43, in four overtimes.
