Penn State’s final home game and Senior Day against Rutgers now has its kickoff time. The Nittany Lions will take on the Scarlet Knights at 3:30 p.m. ET in Beaver Stadium. The game will be aired on the Big Ten Network.

Last season, Penn State beat Rutgers 20-7 in a game few would like to remember. The Nittany Lions have won 12-straight games against Rutgers including the last five as conference opponents. Penn State leads the all-time series 27-2.

The Scarlet Knights are in the midst of yet another awful season. They currently have a 2-8 record and are winless in the Big Ten. They play host to Michigan State this Saturday at 12:00 p.m. ET in search of that elusive, first conference win. As you may have heard, Penn State heads to Columbus this weekend to take on Ohio State. If the Nittany Lions can upset the Buckeyes, they will need to beat Rutgers in order to claim the Big Ten East division crown.
