How to Watch: New Era for Penn State Offense Begins Against Rutgers

This past Saturday was a bleak day for Penn State football, and the program is hoping for something better against Rutgers.

Sunday was a bleak day for Mike Yurcich.

Penn State lost to Michigan Saturday, as a result, it’s chances of winning the Big Ten and making the College Football Playoff went up in smoke.

The next day, the program fired offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich. While Penn State searches for a full-time OC, RB coach Ja’Juan Seider and TE coach Ty Howle— who were already co-offensive coordinators in addition— will be splitting the OC duties for the rest of the season, which begins Saturday against Rutgers at Beaver Stadium.

Rutgers comes into the matchup with a 6-4 overall record and 3-4 Big Ten mark. All coach Greg Schiano— a former Penn State assistant under Joe Paterno— has to do is win one more game, and the program will have its first winning season since 2014, the year it joined the Big Ten. That team, under the direction of coach Kyle Flood, failed to beat Penn State, and the next eight Rutgers teams didn’t fare any better. Rutgers didn’t do well against Penn State before joining the Big Ten, either.

In a series that dates back to 1918, Rutgers is 2-31 against Penn State. One of those wins was in that 1918 meeting— Babe Ruth still player for the Red Sox back then— and the second one was in 1988, when Penn State HC James Franklin was still in high school.

Penn State comes in as a three-touchdown favorite. For Penn State fans who won’t be in attendance for Senior Day at Beaver Stadium, here’s how to watch and listen to the game.
