Penn State basketball will turn a home game into a neutral site contest this January as the Nittany Lions will reportedly host Michigan State at the Palestra in Philadelphia this season.

According to MLive.com the Nittany Lions will host Michigan State on January 7 in Philadelphia at the historic venue. Neither program has confirmed the game. The contest will mark an early homecoming for Penn State's now Philadelphia full roster with the likes of freshman Tony Carr, Lamar Stevens and Nazeer Bostick.

Michigan State meanwhile will welcome the 4th ranked recruiting class in the nation. Penn State will face Duke earlier in the season, the Blue Devils bringing in the No. 2 ranked recruiting haul of 2016.

Times and dates for the remainder of Penn State's conference schedule have yet to be released. Penn State most recently played at the Palestra against Drexel with the Nittany Lions mounting a late comeback to win 73-68.
