Penn State's trip to East Lansing on October 26 has a start time. The Nittany Lions and Spartans will renew their battle for the Land Grant Trophy at 3:30 p.m. in Spartan Stadium. ABC will have the game on TV.
The Lions will be looking for a bit of revenge after losing in the game's final moments in each of their last two meetings with Mark Dantonio's squad. The 2017 trip to Spartan Stadium saw both teams deal with a lengthy weather delay before Matt Coughlin connected on a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give the hosts a 27-24 upset victory over Penn State. Felton Davis hauled in a Brian Lewerke pass with just 19 seconds remaining one year ago in Beaver Stadium to rally Michigan State to a 21-17 win.
Michigan State's offense has struggled through much of the season, averaging just 357 yards and 24 points per game. The defense, however, remains as tough as ever, allowing 314 yards and 21 points per game despite a 38-0 loss in Madison to Wisconsin this past weekend.
Penn State of course hosts Michigan and ESPN College GameDay this weekend in Happy Valley, while Michigan State will be on a bye week.
