CBS Sports: Penn State and West Virginia Close To Series Agreement

The two teams haven't met since 1992.

Old eastern foes Penn State and West Virginia are on the verge of an agreement to a home-and-home series that will take place next decade, according to CBS Sports's Jeremy Fowler.

The series between the two teams has been dormant since 1992 after the two teams had played each other for 45 consecutive years beforehand. Penn State leads the all-time series 48-9-2 and won the last four matchups between the schools. Before that four-game winning streak, however, Penn State fans may remember the drumming that a Major Harris-led Mountaineers team gave Penn State in Morgantown in 1988 on their way to an undefeated season.

Penn State now has scheduled old rivals Pitt and West Virginia for games in the future since Bill O'Brien has taken the helm along with Maryland and Rutgers becoming Big Ten opponents starting next year, all great news for people who love the history of the old northeast games that took place in the 60s, 70s and 80s before the Nittany Lions made their way to the Big Ten.

How excited are you for a renewal to this rivalry and, secondly, what other old rivalries would you like to see be rescheduled down the road on future Penn State schedules? Let us know in the comments!
