10 Days Of Penn State Football To Remember

While the drought is over for Penn State fans, there’s not much out there in the way of football news, besides that JoePa is 100%, Sean Lee is chomping at the bit to return, and the graduating class has left a lot of holes for young talent to fill.

Fortunately, there are articles like the Bleacher Report’s 10 Great Days In Penn State History to remind us why we love Blue and White football and never, ever want it to go away again (though it inevitably will).

Among the interesting tidbits from this chronological list of landmark events:

– Joe Paterno was initially paid $20,000 a season. Granted, it was 1966, but that still seems like a paltry sum.

– Paterno’s first undefeated season was made possible by Kansas having one too many men on the field, giving the Nittany Lions a second chance at the game winning 2 point conversion.

– The Lions picked off Miami Quarterback Vinny Testaverde five times in the 1987 Fiesta Bowl.

There’s a ton of information packed in this top 10 list, so if you’re feeling the slow sports news blues, read the post in its entirety.
