Penn State has added a new team to its non-conference schedule for the 2024-25 college basketball season

On Friday CBS Sports’ National Basketball Analyst Jon Rothstein reported that Penn State will host Penn in a non-conference matchup in late December. The game will take place on Dec. 29, per Rothstein.

Penn State’s athletic site lists four prior matchups between Penn and Penn State, with the Nittany Lions having won all four. Most recently, the two teams played each other in the 2013-14 season, in which Penn State took home a 83-71 win in Philadelphia behind Tim Frazier and D.J. Newbill.

The Nittany Lions are set to take on Virginia Tech from the ACC as part of the Hall of Fame series in Baltimore, Maryland. That matchup will take place at CFG Bank Arena on Nov. 15. Villanova and Virginia are also part of the event and will be playing each other.

While the Penn State conference schedule has not officially dropped yet, we do know which teams the Nittany Lions will be hosting and which they will be traveling to face. Penn State’s home-only opponents for the 2024-25 college basketball season are listed as follows: Maryland, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio State, Oregon, Purdue, Wisconsin. Penn State’s away-only opponents for the 2024-25 college basketball season are listed as follows: Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, UCLA, USC, Wisconsin. Penn State’s home and away opponents for the 2024-25 college basketball season are listed as follows: Indiana, Minnesota, Rutgers.
