The York Dispatch, Pa. — The York Dispatch, Pa.

May 16--The first game time of the 2018 Penn State football season will find the Nittany Lions visiting Pittsburgh for an ABC Saturday night game on Sept. 8 at Heinz Field.

The contest is slated for an 8 p.m. kickoff.

The Nittany Lions face Pitt for the third game of a four-game series. Penn State is 51-43-4 all-time against the Panthers. Last season, the Nittany Lions used a pair of Mike Gesicki touchdown catches and two scores by Saquon Barkley to post a 33-14 win over Pittsburgh.

Penn State will play host to Pitt in 2019. After that, the storied in-state rivalry is not scheduled to resume, at least as of now.

The Lions open the season at Beaver Stadium against Appalachian State on Sept. 1.
