Penn State is adding another nationally televised game to its upcoming schedule. As Penn State was taking care of business against Villanova in Week 4, it was announced that Penn State’s road game in Week 6 at Iowa will be scheduled for a mid-afternoon kickoff on FOX.
Penn State’s road game at Iowa on Oct. 9 will be scheduled for a 4:00 p.m. ET kickoff on FOX.
This will be Penn State’s second game airing on FOX this season. The Nittany Lions had their season-opening victory at Wisconsin aired on FOX as the Big Noon Kickoff. This gem against Iowa will come in the middle of the afternoon time window, but it could still be a marquee game for the network as long as Penn State and Iowa can both avoid upsets next weekend.
Penn State will host Indiana in Week 5 for a primetime matchup in Beaver Stadium. Penn State will be in the ABC Saturday night timeslot for the second time in three weeks. Iowa will be on the road against Maryland, a team that looks capable of causing some trouble for the Hawkeyes.
Penn State has held the upper hand in their series with Iowa in recent years, but Iowa celebrated a 41-21 victory in Happy Valley last season.
