We have taken our shots at predicting kickoff times for Penn State in the month of September (and even got one exactly right!) and have gone on the record for the month of October. That leaves just one final month of games to predict kickoff times for. If things manage to go well, Penn State could be playing some important games in the final stretch of the season in November.
Let’s take a look at the November slate of games.
We want to remind you that we have the fully up-to-date 2021 Penn State football schedule available, and it will be updated as needed.
Week 10: Penn State at Maryland
Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports
Date: November 6, 2021 Kickoff Prediction: 12 p.m. The Nittany Lions will be looking for revenge on the Terrapins, a bit of a recurring theme for the 2021 schedule. Maryland used big plays to jump all over Penn State at the start of last season's meeting in Happy Valley. Penn State has had great success in College Park their last few trips. But this could be a noon eastern game for ESPN 2 if things aren't going exceptionally well for Penn State by this point. They will be coming off the big game at Ohio State the previous week.
Week 11: Penn State vs. Michigan

Date: November 13, 2021 Kickoff Prediction: 7:30 p.m. It certainly looks like we will have a second Whiteout game. Whenever ABC does a night game at Penn State, they always look forward to the Whiteout. And although there will very likely be a whiteout game earlier in the season against Auburn, this game could call for the same treatment. Penn State typically uses a whiteout for their home game against Michigan or Ohio State. And the stakes could be high if both Penn State and Michigan get off to good starts this season.
Week 12: Penn State vs. Rutgers

Date: November 20, 2021 Kickoff Prediction: 3:30 p.m. Senior day is always a big deal as you play in front of the home fans for the final time of the season, and you want to send your seniors out. It also gives the fans something to look forward to for next year. The game may not carry a lot of meaning for a national audience, so a mid-afternoon time slot on Big Ten Network could be in the cards here.
Week 13: Penn State at Michigan State
Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports
Date: November 27, 2021 Kickoff Prediction: 7 PM This game vs Michigan State could mean nothing or it could mean a lot for Penn State. A potential chance to play in the Big Ten championship game could, in theory, be on the line in the final week of the season, just as it was in 2016. If that were to be the case, a primetime matchup for the Land Grant Trophy? Sign us up.
