The Penn State Nittany Lions will open the 2014 college football season against the Central Florida Knights in Ireland.

It’ll be the first international game for either team.

The Gaelic Athletic Association along with officials from both schools made the announcement on Sunday in Dublin, Ireland. The game will be played at Croke Park on August 30.

The 2014 game will be the eighth American college football game to be played in Ireland.

Notre Dame and Navy opened the 2012 season in Dublin’s Aviva Park.

The Nittany Lions will be the first Big Ten team to play internationally since Michigan State and Wisconsin met in Tokyo, Japan in the finale of the 1993 season.

Fans don’t like hire but Penn State chooses Patriots’ O’Brien as head coach

The faithful fans and alumni of the Penn State Nittany Lions were hoping for a big-name hire to replace Joe Paterno.

Instead, they saw the administration hire a no-name guy in Bill O’Brien.

O’Brien was the offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots and is the first head coach in 46 years at Penn State.

The hiring ends a controversial and turbulent two-month stretch that began with the firing of Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno on November 9 in the aftermath of the child-sex abuse case against retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

The 42-year-old O’Brien spent this NFL season, his first as the coordinator of the Patriots offense and has also coached the receivers in past seasons.

PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Buckeyes try to rebound against Nittany Lions

The Ohio State Buckeyes are looking to rebound this afternoon at home against the Penn State Nittany Lions.

The Buckeyes lost last week in overtime against the Purdue Boilermakers in West Lafayette, 26-23.

The Bucks could’ve won the game in regulation, but the extra point was blocked.

With that loss, OSU is an unheard of 1-3 on the road this season. During Jim Tressel’s tenure as a coach, they lost only three road games.

Today at 3:30 p.m., the Buckeyes will be hosting Penn State who is 8-2, 5-1 and the #1 team in the Leaders Division. OSU leads the series 13-12 and won 38-14 last year in Columbus.

The Nittany Lions are trying rebound themselves from a loss to Nebraska, 17-14, and the loss of their long-time head coach Joe Paterno.

Penn State, before a couple of weeks ago, was one of the cleanest programs in college football. But then the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse accusations started, and the media-blitz of bad press has followed since. Those accusations on Sandusky have resulted in the president, Paterno, the athletic director and the Business manager who ran the campus police all being ousted.

Penn State has a storied program with 826 all-time wins (5th in nation), 43 Bowl Games (8th in nation), 27 Bowl Wins (3rd in nation), 95 1st Team All-America Selections.

The Nittany Lions are now coached by defensive coordinator Tom Bradley, who is in his 33rd season at his alma mater.

Special teams might play into this game.

Penn State on kickoff returns is led by Chaz Powell and has ran one back for a TD. Punt returner Justin Brown is steady and catches all balls.

The placekicking/punter duties belong to Anthony Fera who averages 42.1 yards a punt and is 12 of 15 on field goals. He is 1 for 4 from 40 yards or more.

Ohio State’s KOR and PR is led by the explosive Jordan Hall.

Ed DeChellis, who did the impossible, rebuilding the Penn State Nittany Lions basketball program into a Big Ten contender, is leaving to coach at the U.S. Naval Academy.

He led the Nittany Lions men’s team to the NCAA tournament this past season.

In eight years under DeChellis’ leadership, Penn State was 114-138, but just 41-95 in the tough Big Ten regular-season.
