DigNittany’s First Take on the Non-Final, Subject to Change 2012 Penn State Women’s Volleyball Team Schedule


When 2012 rolled around, we called in our crack team of researchers and statisticians and asked them to pin down the 2012 schedule for the Penn State Women’s Volleyball team.

We thought it was a pretty straightforward assignment, but when they came back, they kept saying things like “there’s some guesswork involved” and “it’s not really final” and “it hasn’t been approved.” So, take it with a grain of salt — things could change. But we’ll update the schedule as more information trickles in. It’s a start:
