BYU-PENN STATE GAME GOES PRIMETIME

The Penn State-Brigham Young football game on September 21st at Beaver Stadium will be moved from afternoon to night to permit a national telecast by ABC, it was announced today.

Athletic Director Jim Tarman said kickoff time for the game has been changed from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (MDT) in order that ABC may feature the Nittany Lions and Cougars in a Saturday night primetime telecast as part of the network's College Football Association series.Tarman said the game will be available as a "split national" telecast, sharing ABC's TV marketplace with the Washington-Nebraska contest.
