Penn State Baseball To Face Illinois In Big Ten Tournament

Penn State baseball’s season isn’t over yet, folks.

After sweeping Maryland on the road this weekend, the Nittany Lions clinched the No. 8 seed in the Big Ten Tournament. They will face No. 1-seed Illinois at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21, at Charles Schwab Field in Omaha, Nebraska. The game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.

If Penn State wins, it’ll face the winner of No. 4 Michigan and No. 5 Iowa at 7 p.m. on Thursday. If it loses, it’ll play the loser of that game at 11 a.m. on Thursday.

The 2024 edition of the conference marks the program’s first trip to the Big Ten Tournament since 2022. The Nittany Lions upset the Hawkeyes in the first round but were eliminated by Rutgers in the second.

Penn State went 26-23 and 12-12 in the Big Ten under first-year head coach Mike Gambino.
