Days after hosting Auburn under the lights at Beaver Stadium, the Penn State program found out they’ll be back in the national spotlight in a couple of weeks.
It was announced Monday afternoon that when their Big Ten conference schedule opens up on October 2nd, Penn State will host Indiana in primetime. The conference announced that the Penn State-Indiana game will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. and will broadcast on ABC-TV.
The last meeting between these two teams was controversial as after a long video review, the refs ruled that on his two-point conversion attempt, Indiana quarterback Michael Penix hit the pylon before getting hit out of bounds by Nittany Lions safety Jaquan Brisker. It appeared that was the wrong call, but nonetheless, Penn State lost the game 36-35 and they started the season 0-5.
To start the 2021 season, Indiana was ranked No. 17 in the AP Top 25, two spots ahead of Penn State but their time as a ranked team didn’t last long. They’re currently 1-2, however those two losses were against teams currently ranked in the Top 10 Iowa and Cincinnati.
Penn State leads the all-time series against the Hoosiers with a record of 22-2 and Indiana has never won in Beaver Stadium.
