PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Lanhorne, PA native James Franklin makes his head coaching debut for Penn State tomorrow in Dublin, Ireland. Franklin and his Nittany Lions will meet the University of Central Florida Knights in Ireland’s Croke Classic at Croke Park, the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association in central Dublin.

Penn State becomes the first Big Ten team to play internationally since Michigan State played Wisconsin in Tokyo in 1993, and the first American football team to play at Croke Park since Notre Dame played Navy in 1996.

The game between PSU and UCF will start at 1:30pm in Ireland, which is 8:30am Easter Time.

Line: Penn State + 2
