Penn State's first game of the 2005 football season is against University of South Florida on September 3rd. The Rams are entering their first year in the Big East Football conference.
Game time is set for 3:30pm and will be broadcast regionally through ESPN+.
The Lions hope to improve on their last few seasons and with 17 returning starters (8 offense; 9 defense) they will at least have some experience on the field. Last year, the PSU Defense was the only team in the nation to not allow more than 21 points in a game, allowing just 14 touchdowns total.
