This fall, Michigan football will make the trip to Happy Valley for the first time since 2021 to face the Penn State Nittany Lions at Beaver Stadium. This year, Michigan will not be Penn State’s infamous white-out game — instead, the Wolverines will be the Nittany Lions’ “stripe-out” game, creating a less dangerous environment to play in. Yesterday, some of the game’s final details, such as kickoff time, were announced.

Michigan football: Kickoff time, game information released for Penn State

Penn State and Michigan football have been in a bit of a back-and-forth over the past 5-6 years; however, Michigan has won two straight games and will undoubtedly have a good shot at making it three in a row this fall. That being said, Michigan football must make the trip to State College — beating a good Penn State team in Beaver Stadium is no small task.

In the two teams’ most recent matchup, Michigan dominated Penn State en route to a 41-17 victory. The season before, the Wolverines also defeated Penn State, 21-17, in Beaver Stadium. That Michigan team went on to finish 12-2, while Penn State ended the year 7-6. This fall, both Michigan and Penn State are expected to be better than they were over the past two years, which means this fall’s matchup could turn into a highly competitive game.

On November 11th, Michigan football will face James Franklin’s squad in Beaver Stadium for a noon kickoff. This kickoff time, better known as “Big Noon kickoff,” has faced heavy scrutiny over the years but was the expected time for the game. Although it won’t be Penn State’s white-out game, which is reserved for Iowa this year, the environment will still be challenging as it is the Lions’ “stripe-out” game.
