On Monday, the Big Ten Hockey conference released its schedule for the upcoming season. Here is the full schedule for Penn State. 

Notable matchups

Penn State vs LIU, 10/3-4

Penn State will open its season against the Long Island University Sharks. LIU is one of the newest additions to D-I NCAA hockey. They will join Arizona State as an Independent program. This will be the first time they face off with the Nittany Lions.

Penn State vs North Dakota, 10/30

The Nittany Lions will head to the music city to play in the Hockey Hall of Fame game against North Dakota. This will be a big test for Penn State as North Dakota is expected to be one of the best teams in the nation. 

Penn State vs Michigan, 11/11-12

It is safe to say that it will be "Michigan Hate Weekend" in Happy Valley. Following this series, Penn State football will also be playing Michigan on Saturday the 13. Not only that, the Nittany Lions will get their first taste of a stacked Wolverines group. This team features four top 10 2021 NHL draft picks: Owen Power, Matthew Beniers, Luke Hughes, and Kent Johnson. 

Penn State vs Wisconsin, 12/10-11

A rematch of last year's Big Ten semifinals, where the Badgers ended Penn State's season in an overtime thriller.
