Penn State-Pitt set for prime-time kickoff at Heinz Field

ABC announced Wednesday that it will televise the Nittany Lions' Sept. 8 game against the Panthers at Heinz Field to a national audience at 8 p.m. The Keystone Classic will air on ABC according to the network. The four-game series ends in 2019 at Beaver Stadium, and the programs have no plans to renew over the next decade.

Penn State holds a 51-43-4 advantage in the all-time series, although the in-state rivals have split the first two games of the series. Last season, the Nittany Lions used a pair of Mike Gesicki touchdown catches and two scores by Saquon Barkley to post a 33-14 win over Pittsburgh.

This will be a new-look Penn State team as the Nittany Lions return 13 starters but replace plenty of old faces with fresh ones across teh roster.

This will be the 19th consecutive year that Penn State will play at least one regular-season night game.

It's the first kickoff time announced for the Lions ahead of the 2018 season, which will begin on September 3 when Appalachian State comes to town.
