After floating around .500 the past two seasons, Penn State faces yet another challenging schedule in 2022 with the hopes of rebounding. If Penn State faces division foes Ohio State and Michigan in back-to-back weeks to start October and takes trip down o SEC country when they play at Auburn in mid-September as the backend of a home-and-home series. The Nittany Lions will also be looking for revenge in a few games with Michigan State and Illinois each making a trip to Happy Valley in 2022.
