    I'd agree with Wednesday or Thursday. Gee, the ESPN Gameplan games aren't up yet either (although they are probably on the NFL channels).

    I'd wait until after this week's round of sports channel changes, which is Wednesday. More I think about it, probably Thursday.

    I will be very upset if they aren't up Thursday. I am leaving town for the holiday on Thursday evening and need the PSU Game.

    I do know the game is set for a replay on Sunday. Record that one to play it safe. It shows up in a Search. (I think it is 11AM ET.)

    Check out another post on this board that claims DirecTV is no longer going to carry the Big Ten Network effective October 15. I would be shocked if it were true, since D* picked up a lot of subscribers in Big Ten country last year with Comcast's refusal to carry the BTN.

    use the mobile scheduler for your DVR to set it when it appears.

    So far, the only alternate up in the guide is 617 (SD). There is a game on there Thursday night (non-Big Ten) so it is in the guide with the Penn State game.
