Penn State Football: Sparty Returns to Add Muscle to Future November Schedules

by on May 21, 2012 11:25 AM

The Land Grant Trophy is back.

So are more brutal November schedules.

The Big Ten released its 2015 and ’16 conference schedules Monday, and Michigan State is one of the Legends Division teams rotating on Penn State's schedule. Wisconsin remains the final regular season game for the next five seasons, a spot previously held by Sparty.

The addition of Michigan State marks a challenging finish to both seasons, much like the 2011 season, when Penn State watched its 8-1 start dissolve to a 9-4 season.

Iowa, Michigan State, Nebraska and Wisconsin are the November opponents in 2015-16.

As for the 2016 conference schedule, how about this five-game finish?

Ohio State (Oct. 29), at Iowa (Nov. 5), Michigan State (Nov. 12), at Nebraska (Nov. 19), Wisconsin (Nov. 26).
