Penn State and Central Florida have reached an agreement to play each other in Ireland in 2014 and will officially announce the game on Sunday, according to a report Tuesday from the Orlando Sentinel.

The game is set to be played at Croke Park, a stadium more than a century old with a capacity of 82,300. It is also the home of the Gaelic games.

It would be the fifth college football game played in Ireland, with the most recent being in 2012 when Notre Dame took on Navy.

The two programs have met twice in the past, with Penn State beating UCF in 2002 and 2004, though both games were later vacated due to NCAA sanctions against the Nittany Lions.
