Penn State Will Host Nevada to Open 2025 Football Season

Penn State Nittany Lions Cheerleader November 12, 2022 David Hague/NSN

On Thursday, it was made official by Nevada’s athletic department that Penn State will host Nevada in its 2025 season opener. Although this has been known for quite some time, a statement from Nevada made this a formal acknowledgment of the game.

Penn State was originally supposed to play Nevada during the 2020 season, however after the Big Ten initially canceled the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Nevada opted to play Arkansas.

Penn State’s matchup with Nevada on Aug. 30, 2025, will be the first-ever contest between the two schools.

Penn State has two of its non-conference matchups set for the 2025 season. Penn State will host Villanova at Beaver Stadium on Sep. 13, 2025.

Penn State will open its 2023 and 2024 seasons with a home-and-home series with West Virginia. The first matchup will be at Beaver Stadium to begin next season on Sep. 2, 2023, and the second game will be at Milan Puskar Stadium in 2024.

Other notable future non-conference matchups for Penn State include home-and-home matchups with Temple in 2026 and 2027 and Syracuse in 2027 and 2028.
