Penn State and Purdue’s season-opener has been moved up. The Nittany Lions and Boilermakers will now meet on Thursday, Sept. 1 to kick off their 2022 seasons in a Week 1 conference clash.

Penn State holds the all-time series lead 15-3-1. The Nittany Lions have won their last 9 meetings against the Boilermakers, including a 35-7 victory in 2019. This year’s game at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette does not yet have a kickoff time or TV network assignment.

The Big Ten has been doing some schedule shuffling recently. The Illinois-Indiana Week 1 matchup was recently changed from Saturday to Friday. Michigan State is now hosting Western Michigan on Sept. 2, as well.
