Penn State - Illinois game scheduled for noon

The Nittany Lions' Big Ten opener at Illinois will kickoff at noon ET (11:00 a.m. CT) on Sept. 29.

The game will be broadcasted nationally by ESPN or ESPN 2, meaning Penn State's first five games this season will all air on the ESPN Network.

The Nittany Lions also have a trend of starting early. Three of Penn State's first five games have a noon (ET) start. Last week's contest against Navy began at 3:30 p.m., as will this week's game against Temple.

Penn State's second Big Ten game, an Oct. 6 clash with Northwestern on Homecoming Weekend at Beaver Stadium, is also scheduled for noon.
