Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Land of Lincoln

Rival Team: Michigan State Spartans

Penn State and Michigan State play each year for the Land Grant Trophy. The rivalry took a brief hiatus from 2011-2013, but was rekindled in the 2014 season and makes for a great game to watch as it is one of the bigger matchups in the Big Ten East.

Penn State vs Pittsburgh

Rival Team: Pitt Panthers

The Panthers and Nittany Lions have been battling for Keystone state supremacy since 1893 when Penn State beat Pitt 32-0. The first meeting would be a sign of things to come as Penn State holds 50-42-4 all-time lead. The rivalry was once regarded as the fiercest in the northern half of the country. However, the rivalry lost a bit of steam recently as it has been dormant from 2000 to 2016. The Nittany Lions will look to pick up the W when the two rivals meet next.

Penn State vs Ohio State

Rival Team: Ohio State Buckeyes

The rivalry between Ohio State and Penn State began in 1912 with their first meeting, which Penn State won in a 37-0 victory. It has been riddled with controversy on both sides, but Ohio State and Penn State have since started fresh with new head coaches and have a bright, and competitive, future ahead of them.
