Penn State To Host Army Football in 2015

The Army football team will play Penn State on Oct. 3, 2015, the schools announced today. With the addition of Army, the Nittany Lions’ 2015 through 2017 football schedules are now complete.

Army and Penn State have played 25 times over the years, and Penn State has a 13-10-2 advantage in the series. This will be the first time the two schools will meet since 1979, which was a 24-3 Nittany Lion victory. The Black Knights haven’t beaten Penn State since 1966, and are riding a nine-game losing streak against the Nittany Lions. Penn State last played a service academy in 2012, when the Nittany Lions defeated Navy 34-7 for then-head coach Bill O’Brien’s first win.

Despite its long and storied history, Army is starting a new era in 2014, as new head coach Jeff Monken takes over. The team has struggled lately, going 3-9 last season and just 8-28 over the last three years. The Black Knights’ first game of 2014 will be this weekend with Buffalo.

Penn State will play the Black Knights in non-conference play in 2015, as well as San Diego State, Buffalo, and Temple. The full schedule can be found below:

  • Sept. 5 at Temple
  • Sept. 12 vs. Buffalo
  • Sept. 19 vs. Rutgers
  • Sept. 26 vs. San Diego State
  • Oct. 3 vs. Army
  • Oct. 10 vs. Indiana
  • Oct. 17 at Ohio State
  • Oct. 24 at Maryland (M&T Bank Stadium; Baltimore)
  • Oct. 31 vs. Illinois
  • Nov. 7 at Northwestern
  • Nov. 21 vs. Michigan
  • Nov. 28 at Michigan State
  • Dec. 5 Big Ten Championship Game (Lucas Oil Stadium; Indianapolis)
