Big Ten reportedly sets kickoff time for Michigan-Penn State game
One of the FOX Big Noon Kickoff games for the 2023 season has been set, according to the Action Network’s Brett McMurphy.
The game will be taking place on Nov. 11 and will be Michigan at Penn State. The Nittany Lions will be looking to avenge a two-game losing streak to the Wolverines. Last season’s meeting ended with a 41-17 loss in Ann Arbor for Penn State.

Donovan Edwards and Blake Corum torched the Penn State defense for 339 yards rushing and 4 combined touchdowns in the last meeting of the B1G East foes.
A new face will be leading the offense for Penn State this time around. Drew Allar is expected to take over as QB1 now that Sean Clifford has moved on to the NFL. Clifford was taken by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
Penn State fans will be hoping that a change in scenery will do their team some favors. The last time that Penn State beat Michigan was in 2020 during the Covid-19 shortened season. That game ended with a final score of 27-17.
Regardless of past meetings, the game should be very exciting to watch. It could once again play a big role in who wins the B1G East.
No channel or gametime has been confirmed for the showdown yet.
