Bowl Games Wish to Avoid Penn State; Full Big 10 Bowl Projections

Bowl Games Wish to Avoid Penn State; Full Big 10 Bowl Projections
“They’re radioactive,” a bowl official told Herb Gould of the Chicago Sun-Times yesterday. “[Bowls] wanted Joe Paterno ‘s last game, not a nightmare.” The Nittany Lions finish the season at Ohio State and Wisconsin.
