2014 Homecoming Date Announced

Book your hotels, alumni (and future alumni). Penn State Homecoming announced yesterday that next year’s festivities will begin on September 20, leading up to the football game against Northwestern on September 27.

Homecoming 2014 is significant in that it’s the first time since 1973 that it be held in the month of September. Penn State football went 12-0 that season and won the Orange Bowl, and John Cappelletti won Penn State’s first and only Heisman Trophy.

This is the second time in three years that Northwestern will be the Nittany Lions’ Homecoming opponent. In 2012, Penn State outscored Northwestern 22-0 in the fourth quarter en route to a 39-28 victory over the previously undefeated Wildcats.

Other important information related to Homecoming Week – like the concert, the theme, and the Grand Marshal – won’t be announced until later this year or in 2014.
