Teams that Penn State football has never beaten
Why in the world would Penn State want to join the Ivy League, you ask? Simple, because of all the schools that Penn State has played more than twice and has never defeated, the Ivy League contains four of them: Yale, Princeton, Harvard, and Columbia. Going rogue for one season would eliminate two-thirds of the foes Penn State has never experienced success against and forever erase the shame of losing to a team that once lost 44 games in a row (Columbia). Oh, we can dream. LOL
The Nittany Lions have failed to defeat two Power Five programs, with a minimum of two games. The first is the Florida Gators and this is slightly unfair. All three of these contests were bowl games and all three were in the state of Florida: the 1962 Gator Bowl (17-7), 1998 Citrus Bowl (21-6), and 2011 Outback Bowl (37-24). It would be nice to take them on in a more “neutral” neutral environment.
The Oklahoma Sooners make up the other team Penn State has never defeated in multiple tries. Both contests were major bowl games at the time: the 1972 Sugar Bowl (14-0) and the 1986 Orange Bowl (25-10), the latter one being for the National Championship. I knew there was always a reason why I didn’t like the Sooners, besides not liking Barry Switzer!
