Well Penn State football fans, here is some exciting news. The Penn State Nittany Lion’s will open their 2014 season in Ireland at Croke Park, facing off against the University of Central Florida. For both of these teams, this is the first international game they will be playing in. This game will be live on ESPN 2 on August 30th, 2014.
Bill O’Brian, the Nittany Lion’s head coach, said,
Our players and coaches are so excited to go to Ireland and play a college football game in such a historic and outstanding venue. I have great respect for coach George O’Leary and his team and playing UCF in Ireland will be a fantastic experience for all the players, coaches and fans.
This will definitely be something to look forward to for both Penn State and Central Florida fans, especially since Penn State will be the first Big Ten Conference team to play in an international game since 1993.
