Penn State Men’s Lacrosse To Compete In USA Lacrosse Fall Classic

Penn State men’s lacrosse will play two exhibition games against the U.S. and Canadian national teams at the 2023 USA Lacrosse Fall Classic, the team announced Tuesday.

The event will take place over three days and feature the U.S and Canadian men’s senior and women’s U20 teams, reigning NCAA women’s champion Northwestern, NCAA men’s semifinalist Penn State, the USA Select U16 and U18 boys’ and girls’ teams and high school-aged teams from the Haudenosaunee Nation and Ontario.

Penn State men’s lacrosse finished with an 11-5 record last season, reaching the NCAA Tournament semifinal for the second time in program history. However, the season ended in heartbreak on a questionable overtime winner that gave Duke a 16-15 victory.

The U.S. and Canada men’s senior teams have held onto the gold medals at all World Lacrosse events since 2002, with Canada winning most recently in 2014 and the U.S. winning both the 2018 and 2023 events.

Penn State will take on Canada and the U.S. men’s senior teams at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 14 at the USA Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, Maryland.

USA Lacrosse members can pre-purchase tickets for the Fall Classic at a discounted rate of $15 daily or a weekend package for $25, while tickets for kids five and under are free. Tickets can be purchased here.
