What Comes Next for Penn State

No, you didn't dream it. For the first time in program history, Penn State is headed to Indianapolis to represent the Big Ten East Division in the Big Ten Championship Game. Saturday's 45-12 win over Michigan State was a beautiful finale for Penn State's 10-2 regular season.

It has been an awe-inspiring, historic season for Penn State: called things like a "Cinderella story" and "the story of the year in college football" (thanks, Kirk Herbstreit). But it's far from over yet: at least two massive games lie ahead.

Here's everything you need to know for what's coming up.

 

Big Ten Championship Game

Penn State will face Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game in Indianapolis (Lucas Oil Stadium) on Saturday, Dec. 3. Kickoff is set for 8:17 p.m. The game will be televised on FOX. It will also air on the Penn State Sports Network.

 

Ticket Sales (UPDATED)

Unsurprisingly, tickets to the Big Ten Championship Game sold out in record time. If you're still looking for last-minute tickets, try a third party ticket site like StubHub, SeatGeek or Ebay.

 

Bowl Game

College Football Playoff Selection Day will occur Sunday, Dec. 4. All projections aside, we won't know until then whether Penn State will advance to the College Football Playoff or one of the New Year's Six bowl games. So keep your calendars clear and your wallet ready to support your Nittany Lions when that announcement is made!
