STATE COLLEGE -- This coming weekend, Penn State will honor the late Joe Paterno and his players before Saturday’s game against Temple University.
This is a recognition some people say is long overdue.
The university will honor the former coach on what will be the 50th anniversary of his first game as head coach of the Nittany Lions – a game that Penn State won over Maryland in 1966.
Joe Paterno died in 2012.
Still, his legacy is complicated by the Jerry Sandusky scandal that resulted in Paterno’s firing.
