UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State’s bowl destination and opponent won’t be determined until Sunday, but the school has released a timeline letting fans know how and when they can purchase tickets.

The Nittany Lions will find out where they’re going and who they’re playing Sunday, when ESPN announces the bowl lineup. The participants in the two College Football Playoff bowl games — the Rose and Sugar Bowls — will be revealed at 12:30 p.m. Then, at 3 p.m., ESPN will announce the participants in the remaining “New Year’s Six” bowl games — the Cotton, Orange, Fiesta, and Peach Bowls.

Penn State is expected to be invited to one of those remaining games.

Once the Nittany Lions’ bowl and opponent have been announced, more detailed information about bowl tickets will be posted on and Penn State Athletics’ social media channels. will be the best source for all Penn State bowl information, the school says.
