Penn State is looking into playing a possible football game in Ireland in the future, head coach Bill O'Brien told reporters.

"We are definitely looking into playing in Ireland, no question about it,'' he said, according to The Patriot-News.

"We're working on an opponent and we're working with the Big Ten on that. So that's something that's definitely in the works.''

NCAA sanctions handed down after the Jerry Sandusky scandal last year prohibit the football team from participating in bowl games for four seasons.

Notre Dame and Navy became the first college teams to play in Ireland when they kicked off the 2012 season at Aviva Stadium in Dublin. O'Brien didn't specify whether a potential game in Ireland would come at the beginning of the season or at its end, in what would be a de-facto bowl game.
