Taking A Look At The Games On The 2011 Penn State Football Schedule

The 2011 Penn State football schedule has gone out and this means professionals, supporters, and everybody in between will start the whole process of projecting wins and also defeats for Joe Paterno’s 2011 squad.

When looking at the actual 2011 Penn State football schedule, you see many familiar things, a very difficult finish to the schedule, along with a leading out-of-conference match-up in your own home stadium that will get viewed from all associated with college football. In 2011 Penn State has their usual slate of home and away Big 10 conference games, but has it back loaded with season ending games at Wisconsin and Ohio State. However the majority of fans will be focusing on the early season match-up with Alabama. Penn State vs Alabama tickets will be probably the most difficult to get in 2011.

Last year Penn State went to Tuscaloosa, Alabama to play the Crimson Tide early in the season for a match-up of 2 of college football classic programs. Alabama had been one of the nation’s best teams and had been ranked #1 at the time. The game had plenty of buzz, and plenty of PSU fans made the actual journey, but the group was frankly overmatched. Penn State lost the game 24-3.

This season the game comes to State College, PA even though Alabama will still be a very gifted opponent, likely ranked in the top ten, the game ought to be much more evenly matched. Irrespective, it will just as hyped not just between your 2 fan bases but across the college football landscape in general. Also like last year, it will supply plenty of motivation for the program and players through the entire off-season having such a powerful opponent coming into Beaver Stadium so early in the season.

Beyond the Alabama game, Penn State has bracketed three additional out-of-conference games around Bama before getting into Big 10 play. The additional OOC opponents are all from mid-major conferences, including I-AA opponent and starting opponent Indiana State. Penn State also plays from Temple and also at home vs Eastern Michigan in September.

Once Big 10 play starts, Penn State has home games against Iowa, Purdue, Illinois, and new Big 10 member and instant Penn State rival Nebraska. Road games come against Indiana, Northwestern, and the before mentioned games at Wisconsin and Ohio State to finish the season. While the home and away opponents tend to be fairly well balanced in the Big 10, the ultimate 2 road games result in the schedule overall being on the difficult aspect.

There's a new reward for Penn State in 2011 beyond their usual objectives of a Big 10 Championship, Bowl Game, and BCS Championship. All those are still objectives, but this season is the inagurual year for the Big 10 Championship game on Dec 3 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN. Winning the actual ‘Leaders’ Division would mean topping OSU and Wisconsin, but would put Penn State in the game.
