Penn State’s relationship with the NCAA isn’t the best at the moment, so the Nittany Lions are moving to the NFL!
Well, a couple of the stadiums at least.
The Big Ten released its 2015 football schedules on Tuesday and the Nittany Lions will be playing right off I-95 twice in just under two months.
PSU will open its season in Philadelphia on Sept. 5 at Lincoln Financial Field vs. Temple, and then, on Oct. 24, make its first road trip to visit the University of Maryland. That game will not be held at Byrd Stadium on the Terps’ campus — cool place, by the way — but in M&T Bank Stadium — the home of the NFL’s Ravens — in Baltimore.
Maryland, just a reminder, is scheduled to join the Big Ten in 2014.
Speaking of which, since we’re discussing non-State College trips way in advance, Bill O’Brien’s team will play the 2014 Big Ten opener when they travel to Rutgers next year.
But back to the original point of this post, the full 2015 schedule — save for two more yet-to-be-scheduled-out-of-conference matchups — via our guy Kevin McGuire over at The Examiner:
