Key Games

2/22 vs Yale

The only team to nock off the Nittany Lions last season was the Bulldogs, the Yale Bulldogs. Yale took down Penn State in 14-13 win in February and then beat them in the NCAA semifinals. Again, this game will carry much weight on the national scale as these two go head-to-head in State College. This could be an early preview of a NCAA tournament game. 

2/29 @ Penn

A week after facing Yale Penn State will travel to take on Penn. Last season, the Nittany Lions escaped with a 15-14 victory over the Quakers. Mac O’Keefe and Grant Ament led the way for Penn State in last year’s victory with four and six points. 

3/29 vs Maryland

One of the Sunday night headliners last season was the matchup between these two conference foes. Penn State won last year’s matchup 13-10 after taking an 8-1 lead at the end of the first quarter. last year was Penn State’s first ever win over Maryland and they will be looking to get their second in 2020.
