Penn State Homecoming 2023 Scheduled For UMass Weekend

Penn State Homecoming 2023 has officially announced its dates.

On Wednesday, Penn State Homecoming revealed that the annual celebration will begin on Sunday, October 8, and run through October 14, when the Nittany Lions will take on UMass at Beaver Stadium.

As of right now, there is no kickoff time for the matchup with UMass. However, it’s typical for Homecoming games to kick off in the afternoon, either at noon or at 3:30 p.m. Of course, this past year was an exception when the Nittany Lions’ prime-time matchup with Minnesota served as both the White Out and the Homecoming game.

Per usual, the yearly Homecoming Parade is likely slated for October 13, the evening before the UMass game. More information about other events, such as the Allen Street Jam, will be released over the next several months.

This year’s Homecoming theme, revealed just a few days ago at THON 2023, is “Illuminate the Lion Within.” Following the pattern of previous years, the logo reveal is expected to take place at the annual Blue-White Game, which is scheduled for April 15.
