Penn State will provide the opposition when Rutgers makes its Big Ten football debut in 2014.
On Thursday, the conference released its 2014 schedule which finds the Nittany Lions opening the Big Ten season on Sept. 13 in Piscataway, N.J. It will mark the first time Penn State has played at Rutgers since 1955.
The Lions also will travel to Michigan (Oct. 11), Indiana (Nov. 8) and Illinois (Nov. 22) for conference games. They will host Northwestern (Sept. 27), Ohio State (Oct. 25), Maryland (Nov. 1) and Michigan State (Nov. 29) at Beaver Stadium.
Penn State’s game against Maryland will be the first game between the two teams since 1993, and first in State College since 1992. They competed every year but three between 1960 and 1993.
