Analyzing The Match-Ups On The 2011 Penn State Schedule For Football

The 2011 Penn State football schedule is out and this means experts, followers, and everyone in between can begin the entire process of forecasting wins and also losses with regard to Joe Paterno’s 2011 team.

When examining the 2011 Penn State football schedule, you see many familiar things, an extremely tough finish to the schedule, along with a premier out-of-conference match-up at home which will get viewed from all of college football. In 2011 Penn State offers their typical slate of home as well as away Big 10 conference games, but has this back loaded with season ending games at Wisconsin as well as Ohio State. However the majority of fans will be focusing on the early season match-up with Alabama. Penn State vs Alabama football tickets will be some of the most difficult to get this year.

This past year Penn State visited Tuscaloosa, Alabama to play the Crimson Tide at the start of the season for a match-up of 2 of college football traditional programs. Alabama had been one of the nation’s best teams as well as had been ranked #1 at the time. The game had plenty of hype, and many PSU fans made the trip, however the group was frankly overmatched. Penn State lost the game 24-3.

This year the game comes to State College, Pennsylvania even though Alabama will still be an extremely gifted challenger, likely ranked in the top 10, the overall game should be more evenly matched. Regardless, it will just as over-blown not only between your 2 fan bases but over the college football landscape in general. Also like last year, it will provide plenty of motivation for the program as well as players through the entire off-season having such a strong opponent entering Beaver Stadium so early in the season.

Beyond the Alabama game, Penn State has bracketed 3 additional out-of-conference games around Bama prior to getting into Big 10 play. The additional OOC competitors are all from mid-major conferences, including I-AA challenger as well as opening opponent Indiana State. Penn State also plays from Temple and at home vs Eastern Michigan in September.

Once Big 10 play begins, Penn State offers home games against Iowa, Purdue, Illinois, as well as new Big 10 member and immediate Penn State rival Nebraska. Road games come against Indiana, Northwestern, and the before mentioned games at Wisconsin as well as Ohio State to finish the season. While the home as well as away competitors tend to be fairly well balanced in the Big 10, the final 2 road games make the schedule overall being on the difficult side.

There is a new prize with regard to Penn State this year beyond their typical goals of a Big 10 Championship, Bowl Game, as well as BCS Championship. All those are still goals, but this season is the inagurual year for the Big 10 Championship game on December 3 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN. Winning the ‘Leaders’ Division means topping OSU as well as Wisconsin, but would put Penn State in the game.
