|1888 Penn State Nittany Lions football|

The 1888 Penn State Nittany Lions football team represented the Pennsylvania State University in the 1888 college football season. The team played its home games on the Old Main lawn in University Park, Pennsylvania.
Despite the article title, the school did not adopt the Nittany Lion as its mascot until 1907.
In stark contrast to the 1887 team, the 1888 team is the only winless team in Penn State history. Harry Leyden (1887–1889) played quarterback in 1888.
