Penn State announces kickoff time against Pitt

From CDT Staff reports

Penn State football’s Sept. 10 game against Pitt at Heinz Field officially has its kickoff time.

The teams will reignite their home-and-home series at noon that Saturday, the athletic department confirmed. The game will broadcast on either ABC or ESPN.

The Nittany Lions have met the Panthers more than any other opponent (96 times) with Penn State owning a 50-42-4 series advantage. The teams first played in 1893 and played every season from 1900-31 and 1935-92 but did not meet from 1993-96, when Penn State began play in the Big Ten Conference, and then played a four-game series from 1997-2000, with the Nittany Lions winning from 1997-99 and losing the next year 12-0.

Since, Penn State and Pitt have not played each other.

The Nittany Lions now have five kickoff times announced. The team will host Maryland on Oct. 8 at noon, Ohio State on Oct. 22 at 8 p.m., Iowa on Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. and travels to Rutgers on Nov. 19 at 8 p.m.
