The Non-Con 🗓️👀

Coach Micah Shrewsberry’s second Penn State team will play seven of its 11 out of conference games at home, the first of which coming Monday, Nov. 7 against Winthrop.
It will be Penn State’s first meeting against Winthrop, a team that’s coming off a 23-9 season that ended one win shy of a Big South championship and NCAA tournament berth.
Penn State returns to action three nights later, taking on Loyola (MD) at the Bryce Jordan Center.
Next on the horizon is one of Penn State’s most notable non-conference opponents; Butler.
The Big East school, which Shrewsberry helped to two national championship games between 2007-11, when he was on staff, comes to the Bryce Jordan Center Nov. 14 to take on Penn State in the Gavitt Tipoff Games.
From there, Penn State will compete in the Charleston Classic, its first game coming against Furman Nov. 17. Penn State’s next opponent in the tournament will be either Virginia Tech or Old Dominion the next day, and will end its time in the classic Nov. 20 against an opponent yet to be determined.
Penn State then has four days off before returning to play Nov. 25 against Lafayette at the Bryce Jordan Center.
The team concludes November in intriguing fashion Nov. 29, playing Clemson in South Carolina in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
After Clemson, Penn State has some time off before finally returning to action Dec. 18, hosting Canisius.
Finally, the team ends its non-conference slate with home games against Quinnipiac (three days before Christmas) and Delaware State (four days after).
