The Penn State Nittany Lions have added the Army Black Knights to their 2015 football schedule, both schools announced today.
Penn State will host Army at Beaver Stadium in University Park on Oct. 3, 2015. The game will be the first meeting between the two schools since 1979. The Nittany Lions lead the overall series 13-10-2.
The addition of Army completes the 2015 football schedule for Penn State. The Nittany Lions also have non-conference games scheduled at Temple and home against Buffalo and San Diego State.
In Big Ten play, Penn State will host Rutgers, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan and will travel to Ohio State, Maryland, Northwestern, and Michigan State.
Beginning with the 2016 season, Big Ten teams will play nine conference games and three non-conference games. Penn State has already completed their 2016 and 2017 schedules and only needs one additional non-league opponent for 2018.
Army now has 11 games tentatively scheduled for the 2015 season. In addition to Penn State, the Black Knights are slated to visit UConn, Rice, Air Force, and Boston College.
Opponents scheduled to visit West Point in 2015 include Fordham, Eastern Michigan, Rutgers, Duke, and Wake Forest. Army will also face Navy in Philadelphia on Dec. 12.
