National reaction to the death of longtime Penn State coach Joe Paterno.
Turnovers, penalties and missed tackles cost the Nittany Lions any hope of hanging with Wisconsin, and a spot in the Big Ten title game for a shot at the Rose Bowl.
Stephfon Green ran for two touchdowns and the Nittany Lions held Ohio State scoreless in the second half of a 20-14 victory, earning at least a share of the Big Ten’s Leaders Division title.
The Nittany Lions are 8-2 coming off that 17-14 loss to Nebraska on an emotional Saturday at Beaver Stadium. Ohio State is 6-4.
New Penn State coach Tom Bradley says he is replacing Joe Paterno with “very mixed emotions.”
In the end, the pressure proved to be insurmountable—even for a legend. In the end, Joe Paterno, for decades a paragon of ethics and source of respect in the college football world, was brought down in the aftermath of the alleged sexual-abuse charges pending against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
