Penn State Field Hockey Releases 2024 Schedule

Fall is just around the corner, folks.

Penn State field hockey released its 2024 schedule Friday.  The team will play 17 games, eight of which will be played at home. The 2024 season will be Lisa Bervinchak-Love’s second year as head coach after going 9-8 in her first year in charge of the program.

The Nittany Lions will open their season for a third consecutive year against Virginia at home on Friday, August 30. Both teams have split their last two matches as Penn State triumphed in its first matchup and Virginia returned the favor the following year.

After Virginia, Penn State will face Syracuse at home on Sunday, September 1, before it hits the road for the first time to take on St. Joe’s on Friday, September 6. The Nittany Lions will face two more opponents on the road in Delaware and Kent State before returning home to face Princeton on Sunday, September 15.

After having the week off after the Princeton game, the Nittany Lions will return to action on Sunday, September 22 to take on Bucknell on the road. Penn State then will open Big Ten action against Indiana five days later and play Lafayette two days after that before it hits the road for four straight games, which start on Friday, October 4. In this road trip, the blue and white will take on Iowa, Northwestern, Ohio State, and Ohio University.

The Nittany Lions will return home to play Michigan after their road trip on Friday, October 18. After Michigan, Penn State will play Michigan State at home and then Rutgers on the road before facing off against Maryland at home for its regular-season finale.
