2012-11-20T08:00:00Z Talking Point: Penn State makes moves to boost turnout for Saturday gameANDY BAGGOT | Wisconsin State Journal | abaggot@madison.com | 608-252-6175 madison.com

A daily nugget involving the University of Wisconsin football team and its next opponent. The Badgers face Penn State at 2:30 p.m. CT Saturday at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa.

Penn State has 21,000 student season ticket-holders, but there are concerns many will skip the UW game because it falls over the Thanksgiving weekend. To make it easier for students to stay on campus, the school is keeping the dorms open an extra day on the weekend.
