How to Watch Penn State-Michigan State: Time, TV Stations, More

Another regular college football season is almost over. No. 11 Penn State (9-2) hosts State of Michigan (5-6) with the Land Grant Trophy on the line on Saturday. Of course, there is much more at stake. The Lions can end their first 10-win season since 2019 with a win. The Spartans, meanwhile, need to pull off a big upset to qualify for the postseason.

“This game this weekend is very important for us,” Linebacker said Jonathan Sutherland said. “It gives us an opportunity to capitalize on that and have a 10-win season [and] Hopefully we’re gearing up for a New Year’s Eve six bowl game. Everyone deserves it in this program.”

It’s also Senior Day at Beaver Stadium. The Lions have not yet announced who will be attending the pre-game celebrations.

“It’s going to be emotional but I’ll give these guys some respect,” said head coach James Franklin. “We have a couple of guys who take graduation photos with me at the facility [on Tuesday]. So there’s a lot of different things happening, but of course a lot of respect. I hope – this is always a challenging game because a lot of students go on recess but I hope the place sells out and rocks.

“I hope all the seniors get the cheer that I think they deserve, not only at the Seniors’ Day ceremonies but also when they announce the starters and things like that. I think that would be the right thing.”
