The Penn State Nittany Lions have added the Idaho Vandals to their 2019 football schedule, the school announced Friday.
Penn State will host Idaho at Beaver Stadium in University Park on August 31, 2019. The game will be the first-ever meeting between the two on the gridiron.
The addition of Idaho gives Penn State their second of three non-conference games for the 2019 season. The Nittany Lions are also scheduled to host in-state rival Pittsburgh on Sept. 14.
Idaho, a member of the Sun Belt Conference, now has three non-conference games scheduled for 2019. The Vandals are also slated to travel to Wyoming on Sept. 14 and Old Dominion on a date to be announced.
With two trips to the East Coast in 2019, Idaho will certainly rack up the frequent flier miles. The two trips to Penn State and ODO will be approximately 10,284 miles round-trip.
