About Penn State Nittany Lions
The Croke Park Classic will see the University of Central Florida host Penn State in their 2014 Season Opener at GAA HQ in Croke Park Dublin on the 30th August 2014. This is the first time that both UCF and Penn State will play outside the United States.
2013 was a busy year for both teams with UCF completing the most successful season in their history and winning the American Athletics conference outright and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Penn State welcomed new Head Coach James Franklin in early 2014 following Bill O'Brien's departure to the NFL Houston Texans.
The first in a series of American College Football games for Dublin, the teams will compete for the Dan Rooney Trophy named after the former US Ambassador to Ireland and Chairman of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Outside of GAA games at Croke Park, the event is set to be the biggest sporting event of the year and features a series of citywide events and activities.
