The Penn State Nittany Lions have completed their 2018 football schedule with the addition of the Appalachian State Mountaineers.
Penn State will open the 2018 season against Appalachian State at Beaver Stadium in University Park on Sept. 1. The game will be the first ever meeting between the two schools.
Other previously announced non-conference games for Penn State in 2018 include at Pittsburgh on Sept. 8 and home against Kent State on Sept. 15.
The Big Ten begins playing a nine-game conference schedule in 2016. Therefore, teams will only have three non-conference games per season after that format initiates.
Conference home games for the Nittany Lions in 2018 include Ohio State, Michigan State, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Maryland. Penn State will travel to face Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Rutgers.
The addition of Appalachian State today completes Penn State’s football schedules through the 2018 season. The Nittany Lions need two non-conference games each season from 2019 through 2022.
