Pitt / Penn State Rivalry
  View Video
Two years ago the Pitt Penn State rivalry was renewed and the teams have split the first two meetings in the four-year contract. The first at Heinz Field 42-39 thriller going to the Panthers before Penn State defended home field this past season. The contract ends in 2019, that will be it for the foreseeable future. Penn State released its 2020 non-conference schedule and it did not include the Panthers, meaning the series will not go on past the 2019 series. Penn State A.D. Sandy Barber mentioned during the lead up to the Fiesta Bowl that the talks had been gone going and the programs had not made much progress. While Pitt A.D. Heather Lyke was more optimistic she said a series of extensions was imminent but had not been confirmed. But today it is official, no Pitt Penn State game in the 2020 season. The three additions to the 2020 non conference schedule for Penn State include, Nevada, San Jose st. , And Virginia Tech.
