Penn State Football: No Future In Sight For Syracuse Series

by on May 01, 2015 4:00 PM

Penn State doesn't have Syracuse football on the radar anytime soon. The possible clashes during the 2020 and 2021 seasons are off the table.

"Penn State and Syracuse are not scheduled to play in 2020-21," A Penn State spokesperson said. "When the schools announced the 2013 game at MetLife Stadium, there was discussion about playing a home-and-home series in early 2020’s, but the games did not materialize."

The news, first reported by an SBnation Syracuse athletics site Nunes Magician, noted what many eagle-eyed and future-thinking fans may have spotted -- that many reputable college football scheduling sites had penned in the series between the Orange and Nittany Lions for that early 2020 date.

Conversely, Penn State athletics does not list schedules beyond 2019 on its official website leaving room for nearly everyone to assume that the series was going on as planned.

For the most part Penn State's future schedules are fairly well mapped out until 2019. It will be interesting to see if any of the upcoming schedules are modified but so far there is no reason to think that will be the case.

While Penn State's next-decade meeting with Syracuse might be off the table, those looking to plan for a showdown with Virginia Tech in 2025 can start making plans.

2015 2016
2017 2018

2021 2022
