The Big Ten conference released its 2017 Friday night schedule on Tuesday, six days after announcing the addition of Friday night football games — and Penn State stating that it would not host any such contests.
The conference respected the program’s stance: there are no Friday night games to be held at Beaver Stadium next season.
Even more, Penn State isn’t on the Friday night slate.
The Nittany Lions, who released a statement to the conference last week saying they’d be willing to take part in one road Friday night game per season, won’t have any short weeks in 2017.
Never miss a local story.
Instead, here are the six Friday night Big Ten football games, which will be televised by ESPN and FOX:
▪ Washington at Rutgers, Sept. 1
▪ Utah State at Wisconsin, Sept. 1
▪ Ohio at Purdue, Sept. 8
▪ Nebraska at Illinois, Sept. 29
▪ Northwestern at Maryland, Oct. 13
▪ Michigan State at Northwestern, Oct. 27
