Michigan and Penn State to be played under the lights of the Big House



The Big House lights will once again be illuminated for a football game this upcoming season as Michigan and Penn State have rescheduled this upcoming season’s date for 7PM ET marking the third night game in the stadium’s history.

Michigan head coach Brady Hoke released a statement on the event:

The night game atmosphere created by our fans has been electric and we expect that same type of energy for our first-ever conference night game against Penn State. Our players really enjoy playing inprimetime at Michigan Stadium.

Not only is this the third game though to be played under the lights for Michigan football. It also makes the first time the Wolverines will host a B1G opponent at the Big House for a night time match up. Since the light’s were installed Michigan has only hosted Notre Dame in 2011 and 2013 before that rivalry was put on hold with the Irish’s new handshake agreement with the ACC.

It also looks as though Michigan and Penn State will try and manufacture a bigger rivalry between the two schools in the newly formed B1G East division.

As far as television goes it’s looking like either ESPN or ESPN2 will broadcast the game on the October 11th date.
