Penn State Football To Play San Diego State In 2015

Penn State’s 2015 football schedule is almost finished with today’s announcement that the San Diego State Aztecs will visit Happy Valley on September 26, 2015.

With the announcement, Penn State has 11 games on its 2015 schedule, which is the final year that the team will be under sanctions. The team has room on its schedule for one more non-conference game, likely either before it travels to Temple on September 5, or during its bye week on October 3. The Nittany Lions could possibly schedule a non-conference game during its bye week on November 14, but non-conference games that late in the season are unusual.

As for the matchup against the Aztecs, this is the first time the two teams will face each other. San Diego State has made three straight bowl games and went 9-4 last season after a seven game win streak to close out their regular season (they lost their bowl game to BYU, 23-6).

Penn State has dominated San Diego State’s conference, the Mountain West, in its four matchups against MWC teams. Penn State is 4-0 historically, with a 3-0 record against Air Force and a 1-0 record against Utah State. However, the last time Penn State took on a Mountain West team was in 1977, when they defeated Utah State, 16-7.

Here is the Nittany Lions’ 2015 schedule as it stands:
