Penn State and Rutgers have agreed to a home-and-home series, with the Nittany Lions visiting Rutgers Stadium in 2014 and the Scarlet Knights returning to Happy Valley the next year. 

During my trip to State College, I heard this series was close to being finalized, and it should please Penn State fans for a number of reasons.

The other subplot here is Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano.

He's long been rumored as a candidate to succeed Joe Paterno at Penn State. Though his stock dropped last year, a Big East championship or two in the near future could put Schiano back on the radar. Not likely, but possible.
