Penn State got the boot from Virginia's 2013 schedule.
Virginia was supposed to visit Beaver Stadium on Sept. 14, the return trip after the Nittany Lions lost 17-16 in Charlottesville last September.
But Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner said Monday in a statement that Virginia informed the Nittany Lions it wouldn't be visiting Happy Valley in order to play a home game, and that he hoped to find a replacement soon.
Separately, Virginia announced Monday it scheduled a home-and-home series with Oregon, with the first game to be played in Charlottesville on Sept. 7.

Penn State spring practice begins March 18.
