Penn State To Honor Joe Paterno Before Temple Game
Penn State plans to honor legendary head coach Joe Paterno prior to kickoff against Temple on Sept. 17. The school will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Paterno’s first game as head coach of the Nittany Lions.
The news was nestled deep in a press release today announcing the season’s promotional calendar. The Athletics Department is officially calling it “Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Coach Paterno’s first game as Penn State head coach,” although it is not yet clear what all that will entail.
Aside from briefly appearing in several pump up videos shown before kickoff, Paterno has not been officially recognized in Beaver Stadium since he walked out for the last time on October 29, 2011.
The Lions and Owls will kick off at noon.
