Penn State Football 2016, 2017 Conference Schedule Released

Penn State football fans are getting a glimpse at what post-sanction life might include with the release of the 2016 and 2017 Big Ten schedules today.

The schedules are unique in that they will be the first two seasons of the restructured Big Ten scheduling system. This will be the first two seasons featuring a nine game conference schedule — with each team playing the six teams in its division and three teams from the other division on a rotating basis.

Of course, the highlight in 2016-2017 is a home-and-home matchup against in-state rival Pitt. Home games against Ohio State, Iowa, Michigan, and Nebraska in those two seasons round out a solid slate of games for the Nittany Lions.
