The Big Ten Network's version of College Gameday will be on location on Saturday for the primetime matchup between Rutgers and the team from PA. With both programs entering the game at 2-0, the rest of the conference coming off terrible losses, and Penn State newly sanction-free, the Network is about to realize its dream situation that they hoped for before the season started - a marquee game with the winner getting a head start in the conference standings and an unblemished record.
Here is the schedule for the live, on-location production from High Point Solutions Stadium:
11 AM - BTN Football Pregame: Host Dave Revsine and analysts Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith will report from the mobile set right outside the north gates of High Point Solutions Stadium.
6:30 PM - BTN Football Postgame/Rutgers pregame: The BTN crew returns to recap the day in Big Ten football and segues into pregame coverage of Rutgers-Penn State.
Special guests representing Rutgers and Penn State include Eric LeGrand, Adam Taliaferro, Franco Harris, and Marco Battaglia. Kyle Flood will also make an appearance during the morning pregame segment. For halftime and postgame segments, the BTN crew will report from a second set inside the stadium behind the north end zone.
Don't treat this like a noon kickoff, CHOP Nation. Get out there early and show your pride!
