The Big Ten dumped the 2024 slate on us this afternoon, so we know we can start to plan accordingly for next fall as we now know who Penn State Football will, and when they play them.
The schedule below:
Some immediate standouts are Penn State will host Ohio State for the last time for a while at Beaver Stadium on Nov 2nd, a part of maybe the program’s toughest five game stretch in recent memory.
Starting on Oct. 5th the Nittany Lions will play UCLA, USC, Wisconsin, OSU and Washington over the course of six weeks with a well timed bye week after making the trip out west to visit USC at the Coliseum.
James Franklin and company should be happy though, as their grumblings have been heard and Penn State will FINALLY open conference play at home when Illinois travels to Happy Valley on September 28th.
A sneaky game of note here lies in late November when Franklin’s squad will travel to Minnesota on Nov. 23rd for what figures to be a frigid 11am local kickoff with the Gophers.
