Penn State will open its 2014 college football season against Central Florida in Dublin's Croke Park Classic. The Nittany Lions will be the first B1G football team to play abroad since 1993 when Michigan State loss to Wisconsin in Tokyo.

Bill O'Brien, who worked with UCF coach George O'Leary at Georgia Tech, on the matchup: 

"Our players and coaches are so excited to go to Ireland and play a college football game in such a historic and outstanding venue. I have great respect for Coach O'Leary and his team and playing UCF in Ireland will be a fantastic experience for all the players, coaches and fans."
