BG football to play at Penn State in 2024

Penn State has some non-conference games scheduled through the 2025 season, including home-and-homes with West Virginia and Auburn.

Without Michael Finke, and with Black and Frazier each with two first-half fouls, IL battled in the first half, thanks to Te'Jon Lucas, Kipper Nichols and some fairly good play from Greg Eboigbodin.

San Jose State is coming off a 2-11 season under first-year coach Brent Brennan, which included a 1-7 record in Mountain West Conference play.

"We've just have to move the ball more and not take as tough of shots that we have during these scoring droughts", IL center Leron Black said following the game on his team's scoring woes and what can be done to remedy those streaks.

Just seven days ago, IL went more than 11-and-a-half minutes without a point at Ohio State.




With the win, Penn State improves to 40-3 all-time vs. Saint Francis (Pa.). But Penn State grabbed the rebound and flipped it to Shep Garner, who nailed a 3 out of the corner. Carr scored a layup before the buzzer to take a one-point lead into the break.

Black led IL with 18 points, while Kipper Nichols added 12. Their eight wins in conference play are the most ever under Chambers. IN defeated Minnesota 80-56 this past Friday evening in Bloomington, and enter the game with the Illini at 14-12 overall and 7-7 in conference play.

Michael Finke was held out the game with a concussion. Underwood said the 6-foot-10 forward suffered the injury in practice on Saturday and is day-to-day. That gave freshman Eboigbodin his first career start and Aaron Jordan joined him in the lineup in place of Nichols.

IL goes back on the road Wednesday and plays at Indiana. IL knocked off the Hoosiers on January 24 for its first Big Ten victory of the season. Penn State has won five of its last six games and the Buckeyes have won four straight contests.
