Report: Penn State Hoops To Host Rider In Season Opener

Penn State men’s basketball reportedly has an opponent and date for its 2020 season opener.

The Nittany Lions will host Rider on November 25 at the Bryce Jordan Center, according to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman

“There’s literally nothing set in stone — and things will likely change,” Goodman clarified in his report. “But here’s the tentative schedule for opening day after reaching out to every single school.”

A spokesperson for Penn State Athletics could not yet confirm this matchup. Neither Penn State nor the Big Ten has released official schedules, either. But, the Nittany Lions have been confirmed to play Virginia Tech on December 8 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Penn State last played the Broncs in 2017, suffering an upset loss in a nail-biter at the BJC. The Nittany Lions hold a narrow 3-2 lead over Rider all-time but have notably lost the last two matchups.

After being a lock to the NCAA tournament during the 2019-20 season, Penn State’s magical season was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic. Things only got worse for the Nittany Lions, as Pat Chambers stepped down as head coach following an internal investigation. Following Chambers’ resignation, two recruits have since decommitted from the program.

Gameday Observations: Villanova

Saturday’s game was a noon kickoff against a relatively tame opponent, but that’s not to say it wasn’t an entertaining affair.
