The Nittany Lions, 11-8-0, currently sit at seventh in the Big Ten standings with only eight points. Though the two-game, non-conference slate would not affect the standings, it would have been labeled as a confidence booster heading into the new year.
Penn State's next series will be played at home on January 7-8 when it takes on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
