Penn State, meanwhile, is in improvisation mode, learning to play without all-everything senior guard Tim Frazier, out for the year with a ruptured Achilles. The Nittany Lions (4-3)

PENN STATE and Temple open the football season against each other on Sept. 5 in Lincoln Financial Field. The teams are also scheduled to play in 2016 in State College. It's unclear when they might meet again. The Big Ten announced two years ago that each of its member schools would begin playing nine conference games a season in 2016, the first time that has been the case since 1984. That means that those schools will be limited to three nonconference games, and that the future is hazy for the PSU-Temple series, which dates back to 1931 and has seen the teams square off 43 times.
