Penn State Confirms Cancellation of UVA Game, Working on New Opponent

Penn State will not have a chance to get revenge against Virginia during the 2013 season as the Cavaliers have decided not to make the September 14th trip to Beaver Stadium, instead opting for a home game against the Oregon Ducks.

An official statement from Athletic Director David Joyner says the following:

“The University of Virginia notified Penn State that it would not be playing the Sept. 14, 2013 game scheduled for Beaver Stadium in order to play a home game on that date. We are working with Virginia to re-schedule the game for Beaver Stadium in a future season. We have begun discussions to find an opponent for the Sept. 14 date and expect to make that announcement very soon.”

– Dave Joyner, Director of Athletics

The updated 2013 schedule for the Nittany Lions can be found here. There is currently an open date in the Week 3 slot, but that should be filled shortly to complete the schedule.

According to a report in the Orlando Sentinel last Friday, the Central Florida Knights are the rumored opponent, which makes sense given the friendship between Bill O’Brien and UCF head coach George O’Leary.
