Penn State University athletic director James I. Tarman said yesterday that every team on the present football schedule was in jeopardy of not being a future opponent once the Nittany Lions became "fully integrated" in the Big Ten Conference.
The Nittany Lions play the University of Maryland Nov. 10 in University Park, Pa. The two teams have played 33 times since 1917, with Penn State holding a 31-1-1 advantage. Maryland has a contract with Penn State until 1993.
"We have yet to reach a decision but we've been meeting with Big Ten officials monthly pushing for a fully integrated schedule by the 1993 or 1994 seasons," said Tarman, whose school joined the conference earlier this year after years as an independent. "We will have made decisions on some future opponents before then, though."
