Penn State will play San Diego State in football for the first time ever in 2015, the third non-conference opponent that has been scheduled for that season by the Nittany Lions.

The game is set for Sept. 26 at Beaver Stadium. Penn State still has one more non-conference game left to be scheduled for 2015. Temple, Buffalo and San Diego State are the others.

San Diego State finished 9-4 last season and earned a share of the Mountain West Conference title with a 7-1 mark. The Aztecs played in the Poinsettia Bowl, their third consecutive post-season berth.

San Diego State has a Sept. 7 meeting this season at Ohio State.
