Penn State will open its football season Aug. 31 vs. Syracuse at MetLife Stadium in New York's College Classic, the teams announced Thursday. The time of the game has not been set. The Nittany Lions and Orange have met 70 times, the second-highest total for a Penn State opponent. Penn State owns a 42-23-5 series advantage, winning the most recent games, in 2008 and 2009. The teams met every season from 1944 to 1990 but did not meet again until the 2008 game in Syracuse's Carrier Dome.
