The whole Penn State wrestling schedule wasn’t released on Thursday.

But, Nittany Lions fans were able to find out one opponent slated for the 2016-17 season.

The university announced that Penn State will host intrastate rival Lehigh on Dec. 4 at the Bryce Jordan Center. The time is still to be determined.

It will be the only BJC dual on the slate after having two last season.

Information on how to purchase tickets will be released soon, as will the rest of the schedule.

The Nittany Lions traveled to Bethlehem to face the Mountain Hawks in Stabler Arena last season. Each program came into the match ranked in the top six of the country.

Penn State came out with a 28-9 victory, but it was also the first time fans caught a glimpse of Nick Nevills. Nevills, who tore a pectoral muscle during the off-season, suffered a tough 5-4 loss but showed what he was bringing to the mat for the Nittany Lions at heavyweight.
