Penn State, West Virginia finalizing home-and-home series

CHICAGO -- Another rivalry renewed.

Penn State and West Virginia are close to finalizing a home-and-home series that will likely start in or after 2020, two sources told

The two sides had talked about playing as early as 2018 but will probably have trouble squeezing in a game this decade because of scheduling conflicts, a source said.

Penn State and West Virginia are about 160 miles apart and first played in 1904, but the series has been dormant since 1992.  The schools played every year from 1947 to 1992. The Nittany Lions lead the series 48-9-2 and have won the last four matchups.

West Virginia has been on the hunt for old rivals. The Mountaineers recently scheduled Virginia Tech for 2021-22.
