“We are very excited to once again play at PNC Park,” head coach Rob Cooper said in a release. “It is one of the best stadiums in all of Major League Baseball and it will create a lifetime memory for all our players. I look forward to seeing Nittany Nation show up and support our student-athletes.”

Penn State and Pitt have played one another 135 times, with an all-time series record of 88-46-1 in the Nittany Lions’ favor. However, in their two games since 2019, each team has one win.
