What time, channel is Penn State vs. Michigan State?

The Nittany Lions lead 14-7 with just under eight minutes left in the second quarter. They were going to the Big Ten Championship Game as Big Ten East Division champions, thanks to Ohio State's overtime win against Michigan that ended just after the Nittany Lions and Michigan State kicked off in Beaver Stadium.

Saturday's Michigan State vs Penn State game might be one of the most underrated of the afternoon slate.

Michigan State's recent tradition, with last season being the exception, is to excel under such circumstances.

Here are some other quick takeaways from Saturday's win against No. 7 Penn State. With J.T. Barrett and Ohio State stumbling at Iowa, Lewerke has emerged as a bonafide candidate for first-team All-Big Ten QB. And while Barkley may still be the heavy Heisman favorite in the short-term, despite rushing for just 44 yards against the Buckeyes, Ohio State's victory may have given Barrett the inside track. The good news for Ohio State was that they were coming off a bye week, and their head coach Urban Meyer is undefeated in games after his team had an extra week to prepare. Ohio State still ranks fourth in the FBS at 549 yards per game and sixth in scoring offense at 43.8 points. No feature back has run for more against MSU than the 67 yards by Western Michigan's LeVante Bellamy on September 9 - with Barkley joining a list that includes top Notre Dame's Josh Adams (56), Iowa's Akrum Wadley (30), Michigan's Karan Higdon (65), Indiana's Morgan Ellison (47) and Northwestern's Justin Jackson (47). The Spartans are 8-5 in their last 13 games against teams in the AP top 10, including a win at MI this year.

It will be interesting to see what it means for the Spartans this week.

Michigan State: WR Cody White.

"We have a young football team that is very energetic and getting very sure of themselves", Dantonio said. "We just believe in ourselves". "Whenever you get the chance to play football, you know, your juices start flowing a little bit more".
