Penn State to Play FedEx in 2010

The FedEx Orange Bowl? Who knows?

But Penn State will be playing at FedEx Field in Washington D.C. when Indiana moves their home game from Bloomington to the home of the Redskins.

Why, you may ask?

$$$$$$$ What else?

According to Kevin McGuire of the

The November 20, 2010 game between Penn State and Indiana will switch locations from Indiana's campus in Bloomington, Indiana to FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. FedEx Field is home of the NFL's Washington Redskins.

The Herald Times of Bloomington reports that the Redskins approached Indiana about moving their home game to their stadium in exchange for a #3 million payout. The Hoosiers gladly accepted the deal as they annually rank near the bottom of the Big Ten in terms of football money.

This is good news for Penn State fans as the game will be in a much more Penn State friendly region and most of the 90,000+ seats figure to be filled with fans in blue and white, even though the game will still be considered a "home" game for Indiana.

I wonder what Indiana fans (either one) think about that! I'm not big on road trips, but I might consider this one.
