Noon kickoff for Illinois at Penn State

If you're planning on going to this year's homecoming game, and love the sight of the morning sun rising over Mount Nittany, you're in luck. Penn State announced today that the Nittany Lions' matchup against the Illinois Fighting Illini will kick off at 12 p.m. Eastern. The official press release added the standard, "The Big Ten Network, ABC, ESPN or ESPN2 will televise the contest with the Fighting Illini, with an announcement on the televising network likely 12 days before the game."

Personally, I despise noon kickoffs. The student section never shows up--no matter how big the opponent--the overall crowd is deader than Rip Engle, and it really, really sucks if you have to drive up that morning. But here it is, in all it's ass-early glory.

  1. Dont worry about the late arriving student section...youre playing Illinois. Zook and his squad rarely show up for either half.
