Women’s Volleyball Coming Home
For the first time in two weeks, a Friday night at Penn State will not feature a pep rally of any sort for the football team. Beaver Stadium may be empty, but Rec Hall will not be as Penn State Women’s Volleyball hosts Long Island, Rutgers, and Florida Gulf Coast in the Hampton Inn Classic.
Penn State will play Long Island at 7 p.m. tonight followed by two matches on Saturday beginning with Rutgers at 10 a.m. followed by Florida Gulf Coast at 7 p.m. A complete list of matches with some additional information can be found here.
After five straight matches away from Rec Hall and recent losses to national powers to Stanford and Texas, this will be an important weekend for the season as they gear up for Big Ten play beginning next Wednesday at tenth ranked Nebraska. While these matches may not have the appeal that USC did early in the season, a similar atmosphere could give a young team still trying to find an identity a ton of confidence.
