[Photo Story] Penn State Football Gets Red Carpet Treatment At 66th Annual Lawry’s Beef Bowl

After a two-year hiatus, one of the oldest traditions in bowl history is back.

Penn State football made its way to Beverly Hills on Friday to attend the 66th annual Lawry’s Beef Bowl at Lawry’s The Prime Rib. The event, which treats each Rose Bowl team to a steak dinner, dates back to 1965.

Before the team arrived, Lawry’s treated media and Tournament of Roses personnel in attendance to complimentary wine.

The team hopped off the bus and was greeted by a red carpet, a band performing “Fight on State,” and an array of media and Tournament of Roses officials.

Once everyone got settled inside, punter Barney Amor was up on the stage first to do a ceremonial salad spinning.

Penn State’s traveling party, which seemingly included every player and coach, was in attendance. Even Parker Washington, who is out for the season, and Olu Fashanu, whose status for the game is unknown, came out for some beef.

PJ Mustipher was designated as the honorary chef and made the first cut of beef of the night. The defensive tackle donned traditional attire in the process.

After a brief press conference with Mustipher, who said he preferred his steak medium to medium-rare, it was beef time.

Richard Frank, who is Lawry’s chairman of the board, was on hand to receive a gift from James Franklin.

The Rose Bowl trophy was also looming at the front of the room. The game kicks off in just two days, folks.
