In 100th Year, Nittany Lions Have Eyes on the NCAA Postseason

Penn State also figures to receive important contributions from midfielders Drew Roper (Columbus, Ohio), Taylor Stothoff (Sparks, Md.) and Riley Lasda (Ithaca, N.Y.) who combined for 32 appearances in 2012. Other Nittany Lions, such as Kyle Baier (Auburn, N.Y.) and Ryne Sternberg (Toronto, Ont.) provide Penn State important depth, while looking to see more regular playing time.

The Nittany Lions again face a challenging slate of games in 2013. The preseason No. 15 by Inside Lacrosse, the Nittany Lions will face seven teams in the magazine's poll including No. 3 Notre Dame (Feb. 24), No. 8 Lehigh (March 9), No. 10 Denver (Feb. 16), No. 12 Massachusetts (March 16), No. 17 Hofstra (Apr. 27), No. 18 Bucknell (March 26), and No. 19 Drexel (Apr. 6). In addition to those seven squads, two more were ranked by the coaches for the IL poll: Ohio State (19th, March 2) and Villanova (17th, March 30).

With just five regular-season home games, Penn State will be road tested beginning with its first trip to Ann Arbor to face Michigan on Feb. 9 (1:00 p.m.). The Nittany Lions will also travel to Binghamton on March 19. The Bearcats were Tambroni's first win as PSU head coach. Penn State also travels to Delaware on Apr. 20 for a 7:00 p.m. match-up.
