Penn State will play Central Florida in Ireland next year as part of the schools' two-game football series, according to multiple reports.

The teams will meet in Croke Stadium in Dublin, which hosted a Navy-Notre Dame game in 2012.

Penn State has not announced the trip that will serve as a de facto bowl game since the game is not yet official. The overseas meeting has been considered likely if not a foregone conclusion for months, and it will pit Penn State coach Bill O'Brien against UCF's George O'Leary, who is one of his mentors.

The two schools will play this season with UCF visiting Penn State on Sept. 14 for a 6 p.m. game.
