Big Ten Releases Future Penn State Football Schedules

Penn State football’s Big Ten conference schedules for 2018 and 2019, featuring nine matchups per season and home games to close out each campaign, were released this afternoon.

The 2018 Penn State conference slate includes a loaded home schedule with Ohio State, Michigan State, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Maryland all taking the trip to Happy Valley. The entire schedule looks like this:

Sept. 22 – @ Illinois

Sept. 29  – Ohio State

Oct. 13 – Michigan State

Oct. 20 – @ Indiana

Oct. 27 – Iowa

Nov. 3 – @ Michigan

Nov. 10 – Wisconsin

Nov. 17 – @ Rutgers

Nov. 24 – Maryland

Dec. 1 – Big Ten Championship Game

While the 2019 squad won’t have as many marquee home games, it will still host Michigan and — for the second straight season — close out the year in Happy Valley. Here is the full schedule:

Sept. 28 – @ Maryland

Oct. 5 – Purdue

Oct. 12 – @ Iowa

Oct. 19 – Michigan

Oct. 26 – @ Michigan State

Nov. 9 – @ Minnesota

Nov. 16 – Indiana

Nov. 23 – @ Ohio State

Nov. 30 – Rutgers

Dec. 7 – Big Ten Championship Game

Both schedules come via the Big Ten’s official website. Neither include the one non-conference game the Nittany Lions have scheduled against Pitt. The 2018 squad travels to Pittsburgh on September 8, while the 2019 team will host the Panthers on September 14.

Penn State’s schedules for 2018 and 2019 include ten games during each season at this point. The Nittany Lions can schedule two more non-conference games and have four open weeks both years that can be filled.
