PSR Logo
Penn State hosts Ohio on Sept. 1 at noon and Navy on Sept. 15 at 3:30 p.m.

The kick times and network TV assignments for Penn State’s first two home games this season are set.
 
Coach Bill O’Brien’s debut as Penn State head coach is Sept. 1 vs. Ohio in Beaver Stadium and the game will kick at 12 p.m. and air on ESPN. The Bobcats are the first of 10 bowl teams from the 2011 season the Nittany Lions will play this fall.
 
Following the Sept. 8 game at Virginia (12 p.m. on ABC), Penn State will host the U.S. Naval Academy on Sept. 15 for the first time since 1974. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. for Military Appreciation Day. The Penn State-Navy game will be an ABC regional telecast that will air on ESPN2 outside the ABC coverage area.
 
The two kick times bring the total of known Penn State start times to six for this season. In addition to the clash at Virginia, the Nittany Lions' Oct. 6 Homecoming game vs. Northwestern (12 p.m., TV TBD), Oct. 20 contest at Iowa (7 p.m. CT, BTN) and Oct. 27 home clash with Ohio State (6 p.m., ESPN/2) had previously been announced.
 
Additional Penn State kick times will likely not be announced until the Big Ten’s 6/12-day selection process begins with its TV partners, starting with the Sept. 22 Temple game in Beaver Stadium.
