Penn State has put together the finishing touches for its football schedule through 2023, as the program announced two future home games with Ohio and Massachusetts.

The Bobcats will visit the Nittany Lions during the 2022 season. Ohio actually won its last meeting over Penn State, back in the 2012 season opener.

The other matchup that was scheduled will take place in 2023 between Penn State and Massachusetts. This will be just the school's second meeting with the Minutemen.

Both the 2022 and 2023 schedules were released, and they both feature marquee non-conference games.

Auburn will host Penn State in 2022, meanwhile West Virginia will open its 2023 season against James Franklin's squad on the road.

Hosting Ohio and Massachusetts won't provide the most intriguing matchup in the world, but it's critical that Penn State prepares for its brutal conference schedule with some favorable opponents earlier in the season.
