On Monday, Penn State announced two primetime games that will broadcast on Big Ten Network in the 2016 season.

The Nittany Lions will host Iowa on Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. and will visit Rutgers on Nov. 19 for an 8 p.m. kickoff. It will be the first time the team has played night games in November since 1987, when Penn State played at Pitt.

A third primetime game had previously been announced by the team and conference, as the Nittany Lions host Ohio State on Oct. 22 at 8 p.m. That contest will broadcast on either ESPN, ABC or ESPN2.
