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.
