Penn State Football 2008 Schedule - A quick review

Just in case you were updating your fall calendars...

08/30 - Coastal Carolina - The Lions start off 2008 against the Division One Championship League Chanticleers. Start time is still TBA.

09/06 - Oregon State - The first ever meeting between the two teams should be an interesting Big Ten / Pac Ten match up. "Officially" the gametime is "TBA" - however, Oregon sources suggest that kickoff will be at 3:30pm (EST).

09/13 at Syracuse - A renewal (albeit short lived) an old "Beast of the East" rivalry. Traditionally, syracuse was PSU's homecoming game (every other year, that is) - gametime is still TBA.

09/20 - Temple - PSU and Temple have signed a long term (not nd/um long term - but pretty significant) OoC contract. The "lion's share" of the games will be in Happy Valley. Start time is also, TBA.

09/27 - Illinois - 8:00pm EST - The first of the Lions' flurry of prime time games. PSU opens the Big Ten schedule with a pretty formidable foe - and a score to settle.

10/04 at Purdue - Lions begin their "away month" (only one home game in October) against the boilermakers. Start time is TBA.

10/11 at Wisconsin - 8:00pm EST - right into the meat of the season - the Lions head out to Madison - and another night game.

10/18 - Michigan - 4:30pm. EST - Easily the biggest game of the season. And it's homecoming!

10/25 at Ohio State - 8:00pm. EST - Could (hopefully) become the biggest game of the season.

11/08 at Iowa - the Lions' fourth away game in ... 6 weeks? What? There is a bye week? game time is TBA.

11/15 - Indiana - PSU returns home to face the hoosiers. Game time, you guessed it - is TBA.

11/22 - Michigan State - Last game of the season - Lions lost a heartbreaker (soul crusher, really) out in East Lansing last year. This is the weekend before Thanksgiving - Here's hoping for a happy holiday! kickoff? - yup - TBA.
