"It's a different environment than a lot of the Big Ten venues that we go to," coach James Franklin said. "It's an hour earlier than we normally play. The game is going to come fast. What you've got to be careful of is a lot of times when you're playing on the road in that type of environment and you're playing at that time in the day, if you look, a lot of people have opened up slow. They've sleepwalked through the first quarter."
The teams meet Saturday in Philadelphia, and coach James Franklin said he likes playing the game because it gives his program exposure to alumni and potential recruits in the eastern part of the state.
