Big news. Lots of Mountaineer fans have waited a lifetime for this game.
Check it out:
West Virginia University Director of Athletics Oliver Luck announced today that the WVU-Penn State football series will be renewed for two games beginning in 2023.
“I know how exciting it was to play in Beaver Stadium and to have the Nittany Lions come to Morgantown,” Director of Athletics Oliver Luck said.” I think the renewal of this series will be great for the fan bases of the two schools as both locations provide an easy drive. I want to thank Athletic Director Dave Joyner and Coach Bill O’Brien for their efforts in getting this series renewed. Both Universities have rich traditions and history, and to be able to revive the memories and the fun is what makes college football so special.”
The series resumes at Penn State, on Sept. 2, 2023, and the second game will be played at West Virginia on Aug. 31, 2024.
WVU last played Penn State in 1992, with the Nittany Lions claiming a 40-26 decision in Morgantown. The series ended as Penn State began its current membership in the Big Ten Conference.
