Notre Dame Athletics | March 12, 2021
As the No. 4 seed (based on conference winning percentage), Notre Dame will play fifth-seeded Penn State for the third consecutive game at noon on Sunday, March 14 in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament.
It will mark Penn State’s fifth consecutive game against the Irish.
The winner will play top-seeded Wisconsin at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, March 15 as there is no re-seeding at the 2021 Big Ten Tournament (see page 22 for the bracket).
The teams have met twice previously in the Big Ten Tournament at Compton Family Ice Arena.
In 2018, Notre Dame’s first season in the league, the Irish eliminated the Nittany Lions with a 3-2 semifinal win as Jack Jenkins scored the game winner with 31 seconds left in the third (current NHL defensemen Jordan Gross and Andrew Peeke also scored for the Irish in that win).
