UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; October 15, 2007 – ABC will nationally televise Penn State’s Big Ten clash with rival Ohio State on Saturday, October 27. Kickoff is set for 8:00 p.m. ET at a sold out Beaver Stadium.

The primetime contest with the Buckeyes will be the Nittany Lions’ ninth TV appearance of the season. The No. 25 Nittany Lions (5-2, 2-2) will be making their fourth appearance of the season on ABC, which televised Penn State’s 38-7 thumping of then-No. 19 Wisconsin last Saturday, as well as the Nittany Lions’ games against Michigan and Iowa. Penn State has appeared on the Big Ten Network against FIU, Buffalo and Illinois.

ESPN will nationally televise Penn State’s contest at Indiana (5-2, 2-2) on Saturday at 12:00 p.m. ET. ESPN also aired Penn State’s 31-10 primetime win over Notre Dame on Sept. 8.
The Penn State-Ohio State series is tied, 11-11. The border rivals have played annually since Penn State began Big Ten play in 1993 and the home team has won 12 of the 14 meetings as conference foes. ABC or ESPN has televised all 14 previous clashes as Big Ten rivals.
