Last year, Notre Dame and Navy kicked off their college football campaigns with an overseas game in Dublin, Ireland. Next year, two more programs will be doing the same – Penn State and UCF.
The Nittany Lions and Golden Knights will meet in Dublin at Croke Park, The Irish Times is reporting this morning. Last year’s matchup between the Irish and the Midshipmen was at Aviva stadium.
The 2014 season will be the third in a row in which Penn State will be banned from the postseason due to penalties from the Jerry Sandusky scandal. UCF will be entering its second season in the brand new American Athletic Conference.
