CHICAGO — Penn State and West Virginia will likely resume a rivalry 59 games in the making but Nittany Lion and Mountaineer fans will have to wait another seven years to see it happen.
An athletic department spokesman confirmed Penn State is in discussions with West Virginia about scheduling a home-and-home series around 2020. No other details were available.
CBS Sports first reported the likelihood of a series between the two schools Thursday evening.
Penn State and West Virginia, about 180 miles apart, last played in 1992. The Nittany Lions won that game 40-26 and joined the Big Ten in 1993, signaling an end to the series. The two teams first met in 1902 and played every year from 1947 to 1992. Penn State leads the series 48-9-2.
