Penn State To Honor 2012 Football Team During White Out

Now 10 years removed from its improbable run, the 2012 Penn State football team will be honored during the White Out game at Beaver Stadium.

The team will be honored between the first and second quarters of Saturday’s matchup against Minnesota.

In the game notes, Penn State Athletics wrote that the 2012 team “overcame a lot of adversity and banded together through unprecedented circumstances.” That year, in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, the Nittany Lions finished 8-4 despite receiving historic sanctions and a postseason ban.

It was also the first of Bill O’Brien’s two years as head coach of the Nittany Lions. Penn State decided to add names to the back of its jerseys to recognize the players who stuck with the program amid the scandal.

Although it is not yet known which former players will be in attendance Saturday, quarterback Matt McGloin, fullback Michael Zordich, and linebacker Michael Mauti are among the notable stars of the team.

In September, Penn State honored its 1982 national championship team during the Central Michigan game.
