Penn State will host the Michigan Wolverines under the lights for homecoming on October 12, 2013, with kickoff scheduled for 5 p.m. The game will be broadcast to a national audience on ESPN or ESPN2. The Big Ten and ESPN released an initial list of prime time match-ups for the upcoming college football season today. With a less than attractive slate of games to choose from scheduled for October 12, it looked like a pretty simple pick to slide Penn State's homecoming match-up against the Wolverines in to the prime time slot. With the game also being one of the more attractive game son the schedule, a potential stadium-wide white out should certainly be in play here. The last time Michigan visited Penn State, the game was played in prime time as well. Evan Royster and Matt McGloin led the offense to a big performance against Rich Rodriguez and Denard Robinson and company, winning 41-31. Royster rushed for 150 yards and two touchdowns and McGloin passed for 250 yards and a touchdown. Michigan was led by Denard Robinson, who rushed for 191 yards and passed for 190 more in a losing effort. Remember, starting in 2014 this will be a division match-up. In 2013 it will remain a crossover match-up in Big Ten play. For a full rundown of updated kickoff times and schedule notes, check out the 2013 Penn State Football Schedule.
