Penn State and Syracuse will resume their series— one that dates back to 1922— in 2027.

Syracuse announced Wednesday morning that it has scheduled a home-and-home series with Penn State for the 2027 and 2028 seasons.

The 2027 game is scheduled to take place Sept. 4 at Beaver Stadium, and the ‘28 game will be in Syracuse Sept. 9 of that year.

The two teams haven’t played since 2013, and that game— a Penn State win— took place to in New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium to open the season. The last time the team’s played on either side’s home field was in 2009, when Penn State beat Syracuse at Beaver Stadium. That was the last game of a home-and-home for the 2008 and ‘09 seasons, both won by Penn State. Before that, the teams played every year from 1944 to 1990.

Aside from Pitt (77 meeting) Syracuse has played no team more than Penn State, who its met with 71 times.

Penn State leads the all-time series 43-23-5. The last time Syracuse beat the Nittany Lions was in 1988 at Beaver Stadium.

In a statement, Syracuse Athletic Director John Wildhack called the series “one of tremendous historic significance for our University, community, alumni and Orange fans around the world.”

”We are excited to renew this rivalry,” Wildhack said.
