In today's 2013 college football live stream and televised NCAA games, there will be a season opening battle played between two currently unranked squads. The game will feature the Syracuse Orange and Penn State Nittany Lions, as both teams look to get their season started off with a big win. Today's Syracuse vs. Penn State NCAA live stream and TV football game will be presented in various formats for fans and sports viewers around the country.
According to an Aug. 31 report via SB Nation, today's game will be held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. These two squads last locked up back in 1990, although over the history of the teams, they've played a total of 70 times against one another. The game will feature two teams who have the ability to possibly climb into the Top 25 this season. Penn State in particular won't be eligible for any postseason games due to NCAA sanctions, but with an 8-4 record last year, they could improve upon that mark and look even better for 2013-14. No matter what, the team will rely on a brand new "true freshman" quarterback to guide their ship.
With Syracuse, they're in a transition stage now, without quarterback Ryan Nassib, or head coach Doug Marrone. Scott Shafer will handle head coaching duties this year, after working as a defensive coordinator with the team from 2009 through 2012. While the Orange have some talented personnel playing this year, there's still worried fans wondering how this team will look. Today's game will be a good measuring stick going forward, for a team that finished the 2012 campaign at 8-5 overall and 5-2 in the Big East. The team capped that off with a Pinstripe Bowl win over West Virginia by a score of 38-14 back on December 29 at Yankee Stadium.
Today's Syracuse vs. Penn State game has a start time of 3:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The game is set to be televised on several channels with ABC and ESPN 2 listed on the schedule for fans. The channel could vary or even be blacked out in certain regions where the teams are considered local. In addition, ESPN lists that there will be live streaming online coverage of the game via WatchESPN.
