Penn State Schedule: 4 Additional Kickoff Times Announced

Beaver Stadium -- David Hague

Update (4:17 p.m.)— Penn State’s Sept. 9 game against Delaware is scheduled to kickoff at noon on Peacock, not 3:30. The Big Ten accepted NBC and Peacock’s request to move the game from 3:30 to noon.

Penn State football and the Big Ten announced four additional kickoff times for Penn State’s 2023 schedule Wednesday afternoon.

Here they are:

  • The Week 2 game against Delaware at Beaver Stadium Sept. 10 is scheduled for noon on Peacock
  • The Week 3 contest at Illinois Sept. 17 will be Fox’s “Big Noon Kickoff” game
  • Penn State’s Homecoming game against UMass Oct. 14 is scheduled for 3:30 on a network TBD
  • It’s now official that Penn State’s game against Michigan Nov. 11 at Beaver Stadium will be a “Big Noon” game, which had previously been reported.

There’s also been a slight modification to Penn State’s White Out Game against Iowa Sept. 23.

That game had been scheduled to kickoff at 8 on CBS, but has been moved up to 7:30.

Seven of Penn State’s 12 games now scheduled kick times, and six have scheduled kick times and TV stations. Here’s an updated look at Penn State’s full schedule, including the kickoff times/TV channels that have been revealed thus far.

  • Sept. 2 vs. West Virginia: 7:30 on NBC (streaming on Peaock)
  • Sept. 9 vs. Delaware: Noon on Peacock
  • Sept. 16 at Illinois: Noon on Fox
  • Sept. 23 vs. Iowa: 8:00 on CBS

  • Nov. 4 at Maryland: TBD
  • Nov. 18 vs. Rutgers: TBD
  • Nov. 24 at. Michigan State: 7:30 on NBC (streaming on Peacock, Black Friday)

The annual Land Grant Trophy game between Penn State and Michigan State will be played on Black Friday this November, ESPN’s Pete Thamel first reported about the schedule earlier this month.

In a large story written by Thamel titled “How an unfinished TV deal led to an unexpectedly hectic first month for the new Big Ten commissioner,” Thamel reported that the two schools will play Friday, Nov. 24, instead of Saturday, Nov. 25, “to make short-term sacrifices to help the league make up for some lost revenue from the NBC deal.”
