Penn State Football: Is A Possible Game With LSU In The Works?
A Penn State official confirmed that both schools have talked about a neutral site game in the future but could not confirm a date or that the series would occur.
It could be a typo, or it could be a leak about a future Penn State opponent.
The Big Ten Network released a document featuring future schedules up until 2020 on Wednesday. The network's list included a September 12 meeting with the Tigers in Happy Valley or possibly a neutral site location. BTN analyst Tom Dienhart linked to the document in a post on Wednesday following the release of the Big Ten schedules for 2018 and 2019. You can read Dienhart's post by clicking HERE. (Update: The document has since been removed from the site)
LSU has faced Penn State only twice before in program history with the Nittany Lions winning on both occasions. The last time the two programs took the field was in 2009. Penn State won that game 19-17.
In terms of games in the distant future, Penn State has already confirmed future home and away dates with Virginia Tech in 2022 and 2023, as well as West Virginia in 2023 and 2024.
