Penn State notebook: Coaches' Caravan will be in Pittsburgh on May 9
College Football Videos
Penn State football coach Bill O'Brien, men's hockey coach Guy Gadowsky and men's volleyball coach Mark Pavlik will be in Pittsburgh on May 9 as part of the second Penn State Coaches' Caravan.
All three will attend a reception at the Sheraton at Station Square and speak at the event that runs from 6 to 8 p.m. and is sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association and the Nittany Lions Club.
Cost is $40 for members of the alumni association and $55 for nonmembers. Pre-registration is required to attend, and it can be done at alumni.psu.edu/events/coachescaravan.
The 12-stop caravan starts Tuesday, and Pittsburgh will be its final stop.
O'Brien, who led Penn State to an 8-4 record in 2012 and won a handful of national coach of the year awards, will appear to every stop. O'Brien, Gadowsky and Pavlik attended the event last year in Pittsburgh.
Gadowsky led Penn State to a 13-14 record in the program's first season of Division I play and wins over Ohio State, Michigan State and Wisconsin.
Pavlik, a Derry native, is in his 19th season as coach, leading Penn State to a national title in 2008.
Michigan, Ohio State games set
The times for two of the Nittany Lions' biggest football games next season were set.
Their Oct. 26 game at Ohio State will be 8 p.m., and their Oct. 12 game against visiting Michigan will be 5 p.m.
The Ohio State game will be shown on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2, and the Michigan game will be on ESPN or ESPN2.
Penn State and Ohio State will play at night for the fifth time in the past nine seasons.
The Buckeyes likely will be a preseason top-five team after going 12-0 last season — Ohio State wasn't eligible to play in a bowl game because of NCAA probation — and quarterback Braxton Miller, who will be a potential Heisman Trophy candidate next season, is among the team's returning starters.
