Penn State's eagerly anticipated home game against Alabama on Sept. 10 will start at 3:30 p.m. and be televised on ABC, it was announced Tuesday.

It will mark the first time that the Crimson Tide has played at Beaver Stadium since 1989. They hold a 9-5 advantage in the series against the Lions, including a win last year at Tuscaloosa.

The Nittany Lions also announced that their Sept. 3 season opener against Indiana State will be televised on the Big Ten Network beginning at noon at Beaver Stadium.

Tuesday's announcement brings the number of announced start times for Penn State's 2011 football schedule to four. The Nittany Lions' Oct. 15 Homecoming game against Purdue starts at noon with the TV outlet to be announced.

On Oct. 22, the Lions will take to the road to play Northwestern at 7 p.m. (Eastern) on BTN.

The team said the kickoff time for the Sept. 17 game vs. Temple at Lincoln Financial Field should be announced later this month. All remaining Penn State kick times and TV information most likely will be announced 12 days prior to the scheduled date of the game.
