Penn State to Host Central Florida on September 14

Penn State’s 2013 football schedule is complete once again.

The Central Florida Knights will be coming to Beaver Stadium on September 14 to fill the void that was previously left by the Virginia Cavaliers after they opted for a home game with Oregon.

This news confirms a previous report a few weeks back by the Orlando Sentinel that a match-up between the Nittany Lions and UCF could be in the works. Penn State is still attempting to reschedule the home contest against Virginia for a future season and is also discussing a trip to Orlando to take on UCF in 2014 or 2015.

“We’re pleased that we can bring Bill O’Brien and George O’Leary, one of his mentors, together on the playing field this fall,” said athletic director David Joyner in a press release.

O’Brien and O’Leary are friends from their Georgia Tech days where Penn State’s head coach worked as an offensive assistant on O’Leary’s staff from 1995-2001.

Central Florida is coming off a pretty impressive season that saw the Knights go 10-4 including a Beef O’Brady’s Bowl victory over Ball State.
