Penn State-Central Michigan Game to Kickoff at Noon

The Penn State-Central Michigan game will kickoff at noon, Penn State announced via Twitter Monday.

After this week’s game at Auburn, the Chippewas  is Penn State’s next opponent and the second visiting team to come into Beaver Stadium this season.

Central Michigan comes from the MAC, and hopes to have more success against Penn State then fellow MAC school, Ohio.

Penn State (2-0, 1-0 Big Ten) hosted Ohio in its home opener this past Saturday, cruising to a 46-10 win.

Central Michigan is 0-2 thus far, with at loss at Oklahoma and another loss to South Alabama at home. The Chippewas gave up 58 points against Oklahoma State and 38 against South Alabama. That adds up to a whopping 96 total points and a 48 PPG against for Central Michigan thus far.

Penn State has played Central Michigan once before, winning 40-3 at Beaver Stadium in 2005.

It was the third game of what became a magical season in Happy Valley. Penn State finished the year 11-1 with an Orange Bowl win over Florida State capping it off.

In that Central Michigan game, senior quarterback Michael Robinson went 14-23 for 273 yards and three touchdowns and true-freshman receiver Deon Butler caught five passes for 108 yards and two scores.

Penn State-Central Michigan will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network. But before Penn State can focus on Week 4, it must get ready for the Auburn game, which is scheduled for 3:30 on CBS Saturday.

It will be the first time Penn State has played in Jordan-Hare Stadium. The Tigers are 2-0 with wins over Mercer and San Jose State.
