Penn State’s all-time record against each FBS conference’s current membership

·3 min read

Penn State is among college football’s all-time winningest programs and is the most recent member of the 900-win club. Sprinkled throughout Penn State’s 9-2 all-time wins entering the 2021 season are victories against nearly every FBS program with a few notable exceptions.

We have taken a look at Penn State’s all-time records against each current FBS program, categorized by conference. But if you were curious what Penn State’s all-time cumulative record is against each FBS conference’s entire membership, look no further!

To keep in line with our previous breakdowns, all of which are linked below for each conference, this listicle is calculated using each conference’s current membership and not what conference a school played in previous meetings. For example, all games Penn State has played against Rutgers, Maryland, and Nebraska are included in Penn State’s all-time record against Big Ten schools.

As always, this listicle will be updated accordingly.
