The Penn State football team is scheduled to host Temple at noon on Sept. 17, the school announced Monday. The Nittany Lions opened the 2015 season at Temple, and the Owls earned a 27-10 win.

Both the Temple and Kent State games are to be shown on the Big Ten Network. The Nittany Lions had already announced a visit to Pittsburgh on Sept.

As Temple continues its moves toward an on-campus football stadium, here's a discussion the school's hierarchy should have: Would a campus stadium be opening a door Temple wants to keep shut? Like the rest of the American Athletic Conference, Temple would presumably jump at the chance to join a Power 5 league. That's where the money is. Right now, Temple isn't just the best option if a Power 5 league wants to add the Philadelphia market. It's the only option. And it's not far-fetched to think the Atlantic Coast Conference might someday want to add a local outpost.

By Charles G. Häberl President Obama struck a discordant note when he raised the specter of campus "political correctness" and attacked the "fragility" of the student body at Rutgers' commencement on Sunday. Like many others attending the commencement, I was inspired and enthralled by Obama's address to the Class of 2016. However, as a faculty member who was supportive of the principled, student-led opposition to the selection of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as the 2014 commencement speaker, I feel obliged to address some of Obama's regrettable misperceptions.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Speaking at the Rutgers University commencement Sunday, President Obama condemned what he said was a disturbing anti-intellectual strain in contemporary politics and delivered a thinly disguised takedown of presumed Republican nominee Donald Trump. "In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue," Obama told more than 50,000 people in Highpoint Solutions Stadium, home to the school's football program. "It's not cool to not know what you're talking about.

When seeing the success of West Deptford senior Samantha Budd, one has to look beyond all the goals, although that isn't always easy to do. She has been a scoring machine in lacrosse since her freshman year. The goals, now at 209 and counting, shouldn't define her, but they do give an indication about her effectiveness. The goals are a big part, no doubt, but this is somebody who is also the equivalent of a 200-goal scorer in the classroom. Budd is ranked No. 10 in her class academically, and here is a sample of the advanced placement classes she is taking: physics, computer science, English, and calculus.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders thrilled thousands of his "A Future to Believe in" believers - ethnically and racially diverse, many of them young students - who jammed Rutgers University's Louis Brown Athletic Center in Piscataway, N.J., on Sunday night. It was standing room only in the 8,000-seat arena. "Are you guys ready to stand up, fight back, and make a political revolution?" he shouted, and smiled when he heard shouts of "Yes!" "Well, that's good, because you came to the right place!"
