Penn State has completed its 2023 football schedule with the addition of UMass as its third non-conference game. Per the UMass website, the game will be played on Sat., Nov. 11 at Beaver Stadium.
The Nittany Lions will kick off the 2023 season at home against former rival West Virginia, followed by another home game against Delaware. Penn State will begin Big Ten play in week three against Illinois, allowing for the late-seasons non-conference match-up with UMass. The 2023 schedule also looks to have a brutal stretch with road games at Ohio State and Michigan State followed by home contests against Iowa and Michigan in four consecutive weeks.
The deal also includes a home-and-home series with the men’s basketball programs set to begin in 2021 when Penn State visits UMass.
Penn State and UMass last met on the gridiron in 2014, when Penn State walked away with a 48-7 victory.
