Hockey team heads to ND; here's where to watch
UNIVERSITY PARK – It’s a rare weekend in Happy Valley.
Every single sports team – yes, every single one – is on the road.
Hoping to check out men’s volleyball? Sorry, they’re in Hawaii. How about softball? Nope. They’re in Texas. You can scour the schedule, but you won’t find a single Penn State team home this weekend. From men’s lacrosse to women’s gymnastics, they’re all on the road.
But there some events to check out. The Penn State men’s hockey team continues its postseason run with a game against Notre Dame in the Big Ten Semifinals. Face off is 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 10, in South Bend, Ind.
Meanwhile, the Penn State men’s basketball team awaits its fate. It will find out if it is headed to the NCAA Tournament or the NIT on Sunday. The official selection show will air at 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 11.
