Penn State Adds Three Non-Conference Opponents, Pitt Series Officially Comes To A Close

Penn State announced two additional out-of-conference matchups to lock up the 2020 slate and added the second of three non-Big Ten games to the 2024 schedule.

The Nittany Lions now know that they will face off with a Nevada and San Jose State in 2020. The pair of Mountain West schools join Virginia Tech along with the nine other Big Ten clashes to fill out the schedule for that season — meaning after renewing the series for four seasons, Pitt and Penn State will be a thing of the past once again. There are still non-conference openings in 2021 and beyond, but with Penn State’s mandatory Power Five non-conference matchup filled until 2025, it may be another decade before the Nittany Lions and Panthers face off again.

MACtion returns to Beaver Stadium in 2024 as Bowling Green joins West Virginia on the Nittany Lions’ non-conference slate for that season.

Here’s the full schedule for 2020:

  • 9/5  – Nevada
  • 09/12 – at Virginia Tech
  • 09/19 – San Jose State
  • 9/26 Northwestern *
  • 10/3 at Michigan *
  • 10/17 Iowa *
  • 10/24 Ohio State *
  • 10/31 at Indiana *
  • 11/7 at Nebraska *
  • 11/14 Michigan State *
  • 11/21 Maryland *
  • 11/28 at Rutgers *
