Penn State Football opens as HUGE favorites in regional non-conference matchup

Penn State Football opens the season against a familiar regional power 5 program, the West Virginia Mountaineers.

With over six months remaining until WVU travels to Happy Valley, Vegas has enormous confidence that the Mountaineers will not steal a win on the road.

West Virginia is coming to Happy Valley fresh off a disappointing 5-7 season, with questions surrounding the long term future of head coach Neal Brown.
The game will feature familiar faces for Penn State fans as former Nittany Lion linebacker Lance Dixon and defensive lineman Fatorma Mulbah will return to Happy Valley, along with former short lived Penn State wide receiver commit Devin Carter.
Penn State Football will hope to prove Vegas right and start off the season 1-0 when West Virginia comes to town September 2nd.
