Penn State Basketball: Hoops-Football Doubleheader Likely the Day of Nebraska Game

Get ready for a Penn State basketball-football doubleheader on Saturday, Nov. 12, when Joe Paterno’s team completes its 2011 home season against Nebraska in Beaver Stadium.

No official start time has been announced for the football game – Penn State’s first against the Cornhuskers since they officially joined the Big Ten Conference. But the chances of a 3:30 p.m. kickoff are good.

I guess this will make the drive home easier.

I was hoping for a night game.

Why would you want a night game? Happy valley in the dark is not good news for opponents.

I actually prefer 11am kickoffs when I'm not going to the game. I'm impatient

Night game atmosphere! Cant beat a game under the lights, and in a new confrence.

Big Ten does not allow night games in November. I wonder when that will change.

I think they said somewhere that is changing, but maybe they just talked about it.

2:30 games are okay. 11am games are terrible. The game is over by 3pm and its tough to keep the same level of interest up for those other games after the Husker game is over.

As a student going to the games I think 2:30 games are the worst. You have to wait in line 3-4 hours before the game to get a good seat, so you miss all the 11 am games, and by the time the game is over, you miss the start of the evening games.
