We’ll go ahead and write it for you since we know it’s exactly what you’re thinking: yyyaaawwwnnn.

Now, with that out of the way, Buffalo announced Wednesday that they have scheduled a future game with Penn State.  According to the release, the Bulls will travel to Happy Valley to face the Nittany Lions in Beaver Stadium on Sept. 15, 2015.

“We are extremely excited for our fans, alumni base and our football program to have another opportunity to play on the kind of stage that Beaver Stadium and Penn State present,” said athletic director Warde Manuel in a statement. “Playing before more than 100,000 fans is an experience that any student-athlete looks forward to and we expect to go and compete with great effort as we did in our first visit to Beaver Stadium.”

“We are extremely excited to showcase our football program in such a tremendous atmosphere against one of the country’s most successful football programs,” head coach Jeff Quinn. “It’s also a game played in an area that we target for recruiting and a unique opportunity to play in that venue for the young men on our team from Pennsylvania.”

The 2015 game will mark the second time the two schools have faced each other in football; in 2007, at Beaver Stadium, the Nittany Lions took home a 45-24 win over the Bulls in the third week of the season.

In addition to Buffalo, Penn State already have Temple and Rutgers as part of their ’15 non-conference schedule.

    As a fan I know how hard it was for a lot of us to watch our team losing horribly to Bama, but COME ON MAN!! Back in 2008 we played Oregon State as a non-conference game and it was a decent game from a team in the BCS. I think there has got to be some arrangement between Temple & PSU to keep playing each other, but those games are so boring to watch to. If you want to fans to be interested in the non-conference please start playing BCS schools if you want guaranteed wins here you go: Vandy, Kentucky, Wake Forest, Duke, Washington State, Washington, Baylor, Virginia (done before), Maryland, the Big East, throw is a couple of non-BCS FBS schools New Mexico of U & State, Utah State, Colorado State, UNLV. And no more FCS teams please I don’t pay good money for that crap.

    This is exactly why I did not renew my season tickets. it cost me $260 for 4 tickets + parking+ alum dues and no one wants to buy these crappy game tickets. We lost Michigan & Michigan State because of the Big 10 realignment. The prices keep going up, but the quality of games get worse. Schedule better noncoference games and I may renew, till then I’ll stay home and watch on the tube.
