ALL ABOUT PENN STATE: What will Penn State Sports look like this Fall?

With the Fall season approaching, everyone has one question- What will Penn State Sports look like this Fall? Fall sports are a staple in the town of State College, PA.

Penn State was among the 11 Big Ten schools that voted in August to postpone the 2020 fall sports season, according to Sports Illustrated's Pat Forde.

ALL ABOUT PENN STATE: Penn State History & Traditions

Penn State University, located in State College and founded in 1855, has seen countless students come and go over the decades. These students have been instrumental in shaping the history and traditions that many Penn State fans hold near and dear today.

Since its construction in 2013, the 6,014-seat Pegula Ice Arena has been the home of the Penn State Nittany Lions men’s and women’s ice hockey teams, plus countless other community events.

Located on the corner of Curtin Road and University Drive in State College, it’s named after its primary donors, Kim and Terry Pegula, who made the largest donation in Penn State’s history to help build the rink.

Penn State's men’s hockey program first began in 1938, but the current program traces its beginnings back to 1971 when the program was restarted on a non-NCAA level. The women’s team began as the “Lady Icers” during the ’96-97 season as a club team, and like the men’s team, played in the American Collegiate Hockey Association.
