Penn State and Virginia will renew their football series with games in 2012 and 2013. The Nittany Lions and Cavaliers will play Sept. 8, 2012 in Charlottesville, Va., followed by a Sept. 14 game the following year in University Park.
Penn State and Virginia last met in 2002, a 35-14 Penn State victory at Beaver Stadium. This will be the third two-game series for the two schools in the recent past. The Lions and Cavaliers also played in 1988 and 1989. Penn State leads the series, 5-2.
The Nittany Lions are scheduled to play one marquee non-conference game with another major Division I program each season for the next decade. The Lions will finish a two-game series with Notre Dame this year. They play Syracuse in 2008 and 2009 and Alabama in 2010 and 2011.
