STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State got the boot from Virginia's 2013 schedule.
Virginia was supposed to visit Beaver Stadium on Sept. 14, the return trip after the Nittany Lions lost 17-16 in Charlottesville last September.
But Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner said Monday in a statement that Virginia informed the Nittany Lions it wouldn't be visiting Happy Valley in order to play a home game, and that he hoped to find a replacement soon.
Separately, Virginia announced Monday it scheduled a home-and-home series with Oregon, with the first game to be played in Charlottesville on Sept. 7.
Virginia executive associate athletic director Jon Oliver said in that statement announcing the Oregon series that the Cavs hoped to reschedule the rematch against Penn State. Joyner hoped to reschedule as well.
Penn State spring practice begins March 18.
