PSU schedule released; opener Sept. 5 vs. NW

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State’s season will tentatively open Sept. 5 at home against Northwestern.

The Big Ten announced a 10-game conference-only football schedule and medical protocols for all sports this morning.

Season ticket holders will be emailed information regarding the 2020 football season Thursday morning.

The Big Ten schedule will span 12 weeks with each team having two open dates. The Big Ten schedule was constructed in a way that allows season to start as early as the weekend of Sept. 5, but also provides the ability to move the start of the season back to Sept. 12, 19 or 26 through strategic sequencing that allows games to be moved to a latter part of the schedule.

Game times will be released at a later date.

The schedule:

Sept. 5 vs. Northwestern

Sept. 12 at Indiana

Sept. 19 at Michigan

Sept. 26 vs. Michigan State

Oct. 3 at Rutgers

Oct. 10 Open

Oct. 17 vs. Maryland

Oct. 24 vs. Iowa

Oct. 31 at Nebraska
