Penn State will play LSU at a neutral site on Sept. 5, 2020, according to the Big Ten’s composite schedule, which was updated Wednesday when the conference released its 2018 and 2019 slates. originally linked to the composite schedule in this analysis piece, then pulled the link from the story. Several minutes later, it removed the file of the schedule from the website entirely. The Collegian saved the original PDF, which can be found here.

Although no official announcement has been made by either school, Penn State’s lone game in 2020 on that schedule is “vs. LSU.” All home games just say the opposing team without a “vs.” and away games include “at." Penn State's 2014 schedule has "vs. UCF" in regard to the neutral site game in Ireland.

Penn State Assistant Athletic Director for communications Jeff Nelson said in an email that talks between the two schools have occurred.

"We've talked with them about playing a neutral site game in the future," Nelson wrote.

Michael Bonnette, LSU's sports information director for football, said he wasn't aware of any talks but said, "We’re always looking for ways to make our schedule more attractive and competitive. Playing a team from the Big Ten would do it."

LSU played TCU at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys, earlier this year. The Tigers played Oregon there in 2011, as well, so this could be a potential destination for the Tigers to play Penn State in a neutral site.

Oregon and Ohio State are set to play a two-game home-and-home series beginning in 2020, and Stanford and Northwestern will do the same.

Penn State will also play home-and-home series with Virginia Tech in 2022-23 and West Virginia in 2023-24.

My View: Title IX is a scapegoat for college football’s role in decline of NCAA men’s sports
Posted: March 05, 2014

In this article, I argue that Title IX is a scapegoat for the true culprit for the decline in men’s non-revenue sports: the exorbitant spending on football programs by schools which fruitlessly pursue a mirage of revenue.

Media, fans and those pesky pundits are responding in a typical way — they’re perpetuating the idea that sexual assault can be the fault of the victim by blindly criticizing a typical 11-month investigation.

Penn State football isn’t perfect, and that’s OK

Yes, a Joe Paterno-coached team never lost to Indiana. And no, Penn State didn’t play or coach its best Saturday in a loss to the Hoosiers. But come on, Internet. Settle down.

Penn State didn’t play horribly Saturday --- it just didn’t play complementary football in a loss to Indiana
Updated: October 08, 2013 - 2:17 pm

While football seems like a game distinctly separated into offense and defense, the two indirectly go hand-in-hand. The units aren’t on the field at the same time, but one affects the other in a major way.
