The Big House is turning on the lights again, and this time it's for a Big Ten showdown.

Michigan and Penn State announced on Monday that their Oct. 11 game in Ann Arbor will kick off at 7 p.m. ET and be televised by ESPN or ESPN2.

This will be the third prime-time game in the history of Michigan Stadium, with the first two coming against Notre Dame in 2011 and 2013. The Wolverines won both contests.

"The night game atmosphere created by our fans has been electric and we expect that same type of energy for our first-ever conference night game against Penn State," Michigan coach Brady Hoke said in a statement released by the school. "Our players really enjoy playing in prime time at Michigan Stadium."
