Penn State Men’s Soccer Releases 2017 Schedule

Bob Warming and his team will be back in action this August with hopes of securing its first NCAA Tournament selection since 2014.

The Nittany Lions open with Hofstra on Saturday, August 26 at Jeffrey Field. Also in the pre-conference slate, Penn State will head to California for a two-game set against UC Irvine and Loyola Marymount on September 1 and 3, respectively, before taking on Saint Francis at home on September 8.

The conference schedule begins on the road at Ohio State on Tuesday, September 12. On September 17, the Nittany Lions welcome to Jeffrey Field the 2016 Big Ten Champions and the top seed of the NCAA Tournament, Maryland.

The rest of the home slate includes games against Penn, Michigan, Indiana, Detroit Mercy, and Northwestern. On the road, Penn State will face in-state foes Pitt and Temple, as well as Wisconsin, Michigan State, Rutgers, and James Madison.

You can check out the full schedule here.

Penn State will be back without a couple of key seniors from last year, including leading goalscorer Connor Maloney and fellow MLS draftee Robby Sagel. The second-most productive offensive player, Dayonn Harris, transferred to UConn for his final two years of eligibility. In brighter news, goalkeeper Evan Finney, who was listed as a senior last season, is still listed on the roster as a redshirt senior for 2017.
