Penn State football has never played these FBS teams

The Penn State Nittany Lions have played 93 different FBS teams and have beaten 85 of them, but that still leaves an additional 34 teams that the Nittany Lions have never matched up against. With the expanded playoff, maybe Penn State could meet some first-time opponents, but the limited non-conference schedule will make it tough.

The Nittany Lions are 3-0 against the Sun Belt conference since its inception in 1933. The wins have come against Appalachian State, Florida International (now a member of C-USA), and Georgia State.
