Penn State men’s hockey: Challenge set for Big Ten, Hockey East

College hockey power conferences will battled again this fall with the Big Ten/Hockey East Challenge.

Five of the Big Ten’s six hockey programs and nine of the 12 in Hockey East will take part with points awarded for wins and ties, and a bonus point for a road win.

Penn State has four games in the series, hosting Connecticut Oct. 10-11 to open the season at Pegula Ice Arena, then visiting Massachusetts-Lowell from Nov. 14-15. The challenge will span 20 games, lasting until Nov. 29.
