While it hasn’t been officially announced on Penn State’s end, #duqane’s Twitter account leaked the news earlier today that the Nittany Lions and the Dukes will face off for the seventh straight season.
PSU will have a shot at redemption for last year, when duqane simply couldn’t miss from downtown and PSU couldn’t keep up in a 78-52 loss. As you can see below with our updated schedule, the November 13th date with duqane now means that the Nittany Lions will end up playing their first three games of the 2016-2017 season over a span of four days (albeit, all within the friendly confines of the BJC). Thankfully, they will get four days to rest their legs before taking on Duke at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

Even though PSU hasn’t made anything official, it sounds as if the remainder of the non-conference schedule has been tentatively settled on and should be announced any day now, so keep your eyes peeled.
